A Salute to Our Soldiers: Park Scholarships Alumni in the United States Armed Forces

Scholarship. Leadership. Service. Character.

In recognition of Veterans Day, we asked six service men and women with shared roots as Park Scholars to shed light on why they chose to join the armed forces, what advice they would offer those who are considering military service, and how their NC State experiences have influenced their post-graduation endeavors.

We are grateful to these fine individuals and to all who serve and protect our nation.
