Graduation is typically seen as a time for reflection among our seniors – a time to take stock of the experiences we were able to pack into the four (or more) years we had here at NC State. And Kaitlin Perkins has a lot of experiences worth remembering.
There were her experiences at sought-after internships with Johnson and Johnson Vision Care and Campbell’s Soup Company. And not many people can say they had the opportunity to meet and introduce former First Lady Michelle Obama to the campus community when she spoke at NC State.
But its Kaitlin’s commitment to citizenship and service that she’s most proud of. From her involvement and leadership with the National Society of Black Engineers to Alternative Spring Break trips, Kaitlin’s passion for giving back to the community is evident. It’s clear why she was recognized with the College of Engineering’s Award for Citizenship and Service.
