East Carolina University Student Affairs Corporate Leadership Awards Banquet 40 under 40

The East Carolina University Division of Student Affairs hosted the 3rd Annual Corporate and Leadership Awards banquet on April 22nd at the Greenville Hilton.
This program highlights the generosity, service and commitment of Student Affairs corporate sponsors, employers, parents, and former student leaders and outstanding graduates under the age of 40.

ECU alumnus, Ron Clark (’94), delivered the keynote address at the banquet. Clark, a New York Times bestselling author, subject of the movie, The Ron Clark Story and Disney’s American Teacher of the Year, started working with students in Aurora, North Carolina before subsequently teaching in New York City and then founding the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, GA.

In addition to educating 5th-8th grade students, the internationally acclaimed school serves as a professional development site for teachers. To date, over 40,000 educators have visited the Ron Clark Academy to be trained by Clark and his award-winning staff.

The recipients of the 40 Under 40 Leadership Awards were introduced at the banquet to celebrate young alumni under the age of 40 who have used their education to pursue their passion and lead positive change by significant career achievements and demonstrating social responsibility through leadership and service.
This year’s honorees represent 11 different states and one honoree traveled from as far as Ontario, Canada to attend. Many of the honorees reside here in North Carolina with the remaining spread across the country. A few honorees are from as far west as California, through the Midwest, as far north to New York, and as far south as Georgia.
The Division of Student Affairs and the 40 Under 40 Committee reviewed nominations during the fall semester and collected additional information about the nominees before final decisions were made in January.
Awards were also presented to recognize corporate partners who have made tremendous impacts for ECU and its students, as well as individuals who serve as advocates for Student Affairs. Congratulations to these 2017 award recipients!
