2023 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 18th annual Evening of Stars gala on October 26 during NC State’s 2023 Red and White Week. The gala honors 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 Associate Vice Chancellor of the Office of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving Dr. Reshunda Mahone.
“We are all stars, and each of us has a unique story. Together, we are joined…in a beautiful constellation, to celebrate and applaud those who have accomplished, overcome odds to blaze trails, and are shining examples of NC State and our Wolfpack spirit.” — Dr. Reshunda Mahone
