Leader of the Pack
Congratulations to the 2014 Leader of the Pack - Ashley Eli
The Leader of the Pack Program recognizes students who make outstanding contributions to NC State in the areas of leadership, scholarship and community service. Finalists for the honor are selected based on grade-point average, a personal interview, extracurricular activities, written essays on their leadership and service experience and student-body vote. The Leader of the Pack will be determined by the cumulative score from all phases of the process. The Leader of the Pack award is recognized at the Homecoming Football game.
The following criteria must be met to be eligible for the Leader of the Pack scholarship:
• Completed two semesters at NC State at the time of application
• Enrolled as an undergraduate student at NC State
• Returning to NC State for Fall 2015
• Cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher
• Free from academic integrity probation and any previous or current disciplinary probation
Six finalists will:
• Participate in the Homecoming Parade scheduled for Friday afternoon, November 7, 2014
• Receive three tickets to the NC State vs. Georgia Tech football game on November 8, 2014
• Be recognized at half-time during the Homecoming Football Game on November 8, 2014
The top student designated as ‘The Leader of the Pack’ will also receive a $2,000 university scholarship (to be applied during the Fall 2015 semester).
The student finalist with the highest GPA will receive a $250 gift certificate from the NC State Bookstores.
Starting in 2012, the Leader of the Pack scholarship was awarded to one student. The same number of finalists will be recognized as in the past, but only one will receive the scholarship.
Deadline to apply is September 30, 2014 - 5:00pm
