2021 Evening of Stars Award Recipients
Our annual celebration of outstanding alumni and friends in our NC State community.
From a Skywalker to a space traveler, our alumni are an impressive Pack. We held our annual Evening of Stars gala during NC State’s 2021 Red and White Week to honor alumni who continuously put the Wolfpack community first. This year’s event was hosted by Jeff Gravely ’85, and featured Chancellor Randy Woodson and Alumni Association Executive Directory Benny Suggs.
The sound of success is different for each of you, but collectively — like a Pack — it echoes through our alumni body and across our beautiful campus.
— Executive Director Benny Suggs
