2022 Evening of Stars Award Recipients
Our annual celebration of outstanding alumni and friends in our NC State community.
Our extraordinary alumni exemplify our “Think and Do” mindset.
The NC State Alumni Association held our annual Evening of Stars gala during NC State’s 2022 Red and White Week to honor the alumni whose successes increase the value of an NC State degree and add to the university’s growing legacy of excellence, impact and service. This year’s event was hosted by Jeff Gravely ’85 and featured Chancellor Randy Woodson and Associate Vice Chancellor of the Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving Dr. Reshunda Mahone.
“When we tell our students to “Think and Do” – you are who we point to as those who have forged the path before them.” — Chancellor Randy Woodson
