Young Alumni Advisory Board (YAAB)

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 27 members, 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 – Scott Taylor (CCEE ’10)
  • Communications – Addie Jackson (ISE ’17)
  • College Relations – Alex Stone (MAE ’15)
  • Development – Ashle Page (CBE  ’17)

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.

There are 27 YAAB members for 2022-23.
