NC Wesleyan To Launch Alumni Directory Project

Wesleyan has authorized Publishing Concepts (PCI) to launch a project to update contact information for all Wesleyan alumni and to create a new alumni directory.
Starting soon, you will receive e-mails, postcards, and phone calls from PCI requesting that you update your contact information.  We encourage you to respond to these communications.  Once PCI has collected the information, the company will compile the data and create a new alumni directory.

PCI is a trusted partner of NC Wesleyan College.  We hope you will participate in our alumni directory project. 
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Harrell, Director of Alumni Relations, at tharrell@ncwc.edu or 252-985-5141.
Scholarships Make A Difference

Having the honor of being named the fastest growing small private college in North Carolina for the past two consecutive years is exciting, but also brings a greater need for scholarship assistance with it.  Th e traditional student enrollment is at a record high 950 and expected to keep rising.  As Wesleyan continues to grow its student population, the need for the General Endowed Scholarship Fund to distribute more funding will increase as well. 
Your gift before year-end will help increase the endowed scholarship value which, in turn, will enable the college to award additional scholarships to deserving students seeking advanced knowledge at North Carolina Wesleyan. 
You can donate online at www.ncwc.edu/give.  Your gift CAN make a difference! 
Carl Turner, Jr. '93
Proud Alumni & Scholarship Donor

"As a 1993 graduate, I fondly look back on my education, my experiences, and my friendships while at North Carolina Wesleyan College. I was afforded these opportunities through the help and support of my parents, scholarships, and financial aid. Two years ago my wife and I decided to start a scholarship so that we could help a student each year have the same opportunity to obtain a competitive education and create life-long memories like I experienced at Wesleyan. I encourage you to give a gift to N.C. Wesleyan College so that others may also enjoy the experience of attending and graduating from this great college."
Emmanuel Williams '18
Scholarship Recipient
"Since I was a freshmen in high school it has always been my dream to attend college. Not having much growing up in Washington, NC was a challenging time for me. I always had to work for my blessing. That's why I don't take for granted being a recipient of scholarships from North Carolina Wesleyan College. It really means a lot to my family that somebody finds the heart to give their hard earned money so that I can receive my education. It encourages me to become greater than what I am now. I am strongly involved on this great campus serving my second term as Student Government Association (SGA) President. I also work as a Resident Assistant (RA) and perform with a God gifted choir called Voices of Triumph.When somebody invests in me, I invest my time and energy in becoming better."
Jared Johnson '18
Scholarship Recipient

"I am very thankful for the scholarships that have given me the opportunity to attend North Carolina Wesleyan College. Before my time at Wesleyan, I was nervous about how I was going to afford college. I was blessed to receive scholarships that made college financially possible for me to pursue my education. I hope to obtain a bachelor's degree in both Business Administration and Accounting in the spring of 2018. Because of the training and teachings that I have received during my time at N.C. Wesleyan, I am prepared for the future! I hope to take the knowledge that I've accumulated at Wesleyan to graduate school, where I will pursue a master's degree in Business or Accounting. "

Beverly Anaele '19
Scholarship Recipient
 "For many individuals, getting a higher education is an unattainable dream because of life's primary obstacle: funding! For students like myself who received scholarships to do so, getting an education is a dream come true. I now have bound-less opportunities to grow, flourish, and conduct activities to make positive impacts before graduate school! Since I've been at Wesleyan, I've been able to do just that through clubs and organizations like the Taylor-Crocker Honors Program, Refuge, Nu Gamma Phi Sisterhood, Science Club, and as a co-founder of North Carolina's first Generation United Nations chapter, an affiliate of the U.N.. These organizations are collectively brandishing me as a Christian and propelling me toward my future as a globally-focused humanitarian doctor. Education is the pathway to success, and scholarships are definitely the vehicles helping me to get there."
 You can make a difference in the lives of other aspiring students. Believe in tomorrow today...Give
