Quite a few members of the Park Scholarships community have appeared in the media over the past two months:
In May 2015, Khari Cyrus ’16 and Marcel Souffrant ’16 led the fourth iteration of the Park Scholars’ Belize Experiential Learning Trip, a two-week service-learning initiative in which Evan Brooks ’18, Allie Dinwiddie ’18, Donnielle Jones ’18, Zach Jones ’17, Jeremy Nortey ’18, and Adrienne Williams ’17 also participated. This year’s trip, coordinated in partnership with NC State’s Center for Student Leadership, Ethics & Public Service (CSLEPS) and its Alternative Service Break programs, received partial funding from Park Enrichment Grants.
Jeremy Diner says the highlight of his undergraduate career at NC State was learning about some of the world’s biggest problems and, as an Environmental Technology major, gaining hands-on skills that could solve these problems. His academic advisor, Dr. Robert Bruck, inspired Diner to pursue the path of an environmentalist.
