The Park Scholarship award, at North Carolina State University, is a four-year scholarship program given to certain students that is based on outstanding accomplishments, as well as, potential in scholarship, leadership, service and character.
The Park Scholarships program was created in 1996 due to the charity and a generous grant from the Park Foundation. An NC State alumnus, the late Roy H. Park ’31, created the charitable Park Foundation with a dedication to education, media, and the environment. This award “provides a superb educational opportunity for exceptionally talented and well-prepared young men and women who merit the intellectual challenge of a distinguished faculty and a superior university.”
We wanted to share some of our favorite pictures from our adventure with the Wolfpack at Pullen Park, but to see all the pictures from this fun event, you’ll have to visit us on Pinterest. Click here to see our special event catering gallery!
We started everyone off with a Summery Salad with Fresh Greens, Carrots, Cucumbers and Tomatoes House Vinaigrette and our Homemade Ranch Dressing.
Since North Carolina State is located in the heart of Raleigh, what better way to kick off another fall semester than having a Southern Feast at one of the oldest pubic parks in the U.S? Guests, both old and young, enjoyed the Pullen Park Pulled Pork that was served with Hot Sauce, as well as Eastern Carolina BBQ Sauce & Western Carolina Tangy Tomato BBQ Sauce, along with BBQ and Fried Chicken with Homemade Macaroni-and-Cheese, and fresh Rolls with Butter.
For dessert, the guests enjoyed two summer favorites – Oreo Chocolate Mousse and below you’ll see our famous Homemade Banana Pudding!
Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating the new school year, as well as the past accomplishments of the current 16 Park Scholarship award winners.
