Scholarship Gala Concludes N.C. A&T’s 125th Anniversary Celebrations

As North Carolina A&T State University concludes its 125th Anniversary celebration, continuing to offer a stellar education to deserving students remains to be of the utmost importance to the university.

At 6 p.m., April 23, the university will host the 125th Anniversary Scholarship Gala at the Grandover Resort and Conference Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. The black-tie affair is the culmination of anniversary festivities and the university’s year-long goal of raising $1.25 million for scholarships to students desiring to further their academics at N.C. A&T 

The gala will begin with a reception, followed by a small program. A unique, Tony-Award-winning performance by A&T students promises to be a hit. The evening will also include the presentation of special Chancellor’s Legacy Awards to honor outstanding men and women who have exemplified dedication in three distinct areas – education, alumni service and philanthropy. The honorees have created a legacy for all to admire and emulate.   

Live entertainment will also be provided with sounds from the 60s to today’s Top 40.

Since A&T was established in 1891, one of the hallmarks of its success has been its ability to offer exceptional and affordable education and instruction. A&T believes the future of academia resides within its borders. The 125th Anniversary Scholarship Gala commemorates the university’s momentous accomplishment and supports and upholds its dedication to learning, discovery and community engagement opportunities for every student.
