Each year, Humanities and Social Sciences awards dozens of scholarships that help our students Think and Do.
The college honored those top scholars and the donors who make their awards possible at its annual scholarship luncheon on Feb. 25. Nearly 150 guests attended the event that enabled students and donors to connect, catch up and get to know one another.
Several past scholarship recipients were featured at the luncheon. The college recognized Sharita Whitaker, Leigh-Kathryn Bonner and Bryan Hum.
Whitaker (communication, ‘07), an attorney at Smith Anderson in Raleigh, is a past recipient of the Rebecca and Ruth C. Leonard Scholarship. Scholarship donor Rebecca Leonard attended the luncheon and sat with Whitaker.
Bonner (international studies, ‘15), the founder and CEO of Bee Downtown, is a past recipient of the Kristin G. Replogle Nonprofit Internship Award. Bonner sat with scholarship donor Kristin Replogle.
Hum (political science, ‘13), who was unable to attend, is currently a student at Albany Law School and is the executive editor of the Albany Law Review. He is a past recipient of the Latta Washington Internship Award.
