Good Morning Honors Folks,
Yesterday sure was a beautiful day. Hopefully this means the warm is here, though this morning it was still chilly. Maybe next month.
We have some great news for Honors. Emmanuel Johnson, an electrical engineering major and philosophy minor won A&T’s first ever student Fulbright. He also won in the most competitive district, Britain. Chandell Stone, Math Education major, also has advanced to the final stages of the Fulbright and we should know soon about her. And last, but not least, Nadine Jansen, a mathematics major, won the Goldwater for A&T and is A&T’s first winner. Congrats to the students. We should also congratulate Ms. Whiteside on her outstanding work in helping to prepare these students. We are lucky to have her here at A&T.
Tomorrow in 101 ACB, Joseph Bathanti, NC’s Poet Laureate, will be giving a reading and this can count as either a lecture or cultural event.
If you want a free lunch on Saturday and would care to speak about Honors here at A&T to a group of prospective students, then email me. Times are 12:15 till 2pm on this coming Saturday, 4-6. Dress would be business casual and we would only ask you talk about honors for a couple of minutes and be ready to take questions should they be asked. Email me
Our final lecture series event will feature Professor Byron Turman talking on “African Retention in Hip-Hop.” The talk is scheduled for 4-10 @ 6pm in 109 ACB
Attention: Rising Juniors Who Are Planning On Attending Law School
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is holding its annual Pre-law Summer Academy from Sunday, June 30th through Saturday, July 27th. Participating students will live on campus at Chapel Hill and attend morning LSAT preparation classes and afternoon seminars at Chapel Hill School of Law. The seminars will focus on various areas of the law including contracts, torts, property, and criminal law. Costs for housing and meals are paid for by the Pre-law Summer Academy.
In addition to the LSAT preparation and seminar classes, participants will partake of off-campus Saturday trips including NC Central University School of Law and regional law firms in Raleigh. This is a wonderful opportunity for NC A&T students to greatly improve skills necessary to get into law school, learn about the law process, and to build connections. A&T has been allotted seats for 4 students at the UNC-Chapel Hill Pre-law Summer Academy. Participants will be selected through a competitive application process.

Selected participants must be able to commit to living in residence at Chapel Hill for the duration of the academy. Applications must be submitted online at the below application link. All applications will be reviewed in the date order received and the submission process will close on Friday, April 19th at 5:00 p.m.
