Carla Macon Granville Engineering Scholarship Fund

In 1998, 15 industrial engineering (IE) alumni started a scholarship in the memory of their deceased fellow IE alumnae, Carla Macon Granville, who died of breast cancer Sept. 11, 1995.

Carla, a native of Powellsville, North Carolina, was a warm and caring individual and a very positive role model for her fellow classmates while attending North Carolina A&T State University. She received her undergraduate degree in IE in 1988 and was enrolled in the IE graduate program at the time of her death.

The Carla Macon Granville Industrial Engineering Scholarship (CMGIES) was established to financially assist students who are aspiring to become industrial engineers. The first year of the scholarship, the CMGIES founders awarded $1,000 to an outstanding student. Since its inception, the founders continue to pass the torch to a deserving IE student who exemplifies the qualities of a well-rounded and outstanding student like Carla. She is certainly missed by many, but she is also deeply missed by her parents, siblings, husband and son.
