Since its founding on the Chowan University campus in 1929, the School of Business has graduated countless business leaders of tomorrow, prepared for ethical careers in the rapidly changing professional world of today.
Certain individuals leave a legacy that seems larger than life itself. So it was with James “Jim” T. Johnson, Sr. of Ahoskie, North Carolina. The provisions he left behind recently allowed his children to make a record-breaking gift to Chowan University toward the scholarship in his name.
As part of the 2015 Commencement ceremonies at Chowan University, honorary degrees were conferred on two noteworthy community members. Murfreesboro Town Councilman Hal R. Thomas received an honorary Bachelor of Arts degree, and local historian E. Frank Stephenson, Jr.
A gift set in motion over twenty years ago came to fruition with the establishment of the Carol S. Neal Scholarship Endowment Fund on March 2, 2015. The permanently endowed scholarship will provide financial assistance to a worthy full-time student attending Chowan University.
Congratulations to Georgia Williams and Scott Parker, recipients of the Chowan University Staff of the Year Award at the annual Employee Recognition Day.
Georgia Williams is the University Librarian and Head of Chowan's Whitaker Library.
It was July 15, 1966 when I received the bad news in a mimeographed letter from Chowan College titled “Room Assignment.” I would be rooming with my TWIN SISTER – Jerry and I had been rooming together for the past 18 years. We were ready for someone new!
