Young Alumni Advisory Board (YAAB)
Young alumni spotlight: Alex Stone
Alex Stone grew up with NC State in his blood. “My grandfather, a College alumnus, uncle, and mom all attended State. My wife is an NC State alumna, my father-in-law a College alumnus, and my brother-in-law a current student. I was born in Raleigh and rooted for the Wolfpack my whole life.”
The NC State Engineering Foundation created the Young Alumni Advisory Board (YAAB) in 2018 to involve more young alumni with the College of Engineering and encourage their lifelong support.
The YAAB has 18 young professionals, representing various engineering disciplines from NC State classes of 2003 and later. The board is made up of four committees, each with a chair:
- Events – Laura Geary (ISE ’17)
- Communications – Joseph Silvers (EE ’12)
- College Relations – Sam Wurst (ISE ’15)
- Development – Jacob Bowes (CE ’16)
The inaugural board held its first networking event on May 22, 2018, to help establish the first annual Young Alumni and New Graduate Celebration. Check the YAAB events Web page and this page for future networking events and other opportunities.
