EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Sept. 22, 2022) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has announced its newest cohort of Cheatham-White Scholarship recipients, representing some of the highest-achieving students among members of the class of 2026.
The 20 academically talented first-year students boast an average cumulative GPA of 4.45 and, on average, ranked in the top 5 to 10 percent of their graduating high school classes. Fifteen hail from North Carolina, with the others from Maryland, Minnesota and Virginia. They represent six of the university’s academic colleges: the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics, College of Engineering, John R. and Kathy R. Hairston College of Health and Human Sciences, and College of Science and Technology.
“Cheatham-White Scholars distinguish themselves through their abilities and their work, whether in the classroom or in the community,” said Margaret I. Kanipes, Ph.D., N.C. A&T Honors Program director. “As Aggies, they will be challenged, enlightened and prepared for continued success in their every endeavor as future leaders and innovators.”
“Our fifth cohort of Cheatham-White Scholars represents a continuing commitment to academic excellence,” said Interim Provost Tonya Smith-Jackson, Ph.D., executive vice chancellor for Academic Affairs. “We are confident these students will enhance their skills and develop their talents to achieve every goal they have set for themselves, now and in the future.”
The Cheatham-White Scholarship, established in 2018, is named for Henry P. Cheatham and George H. White, two African Americans who represented North Carolina in the United States Congress around the turn of the 20th century. From difficult beginnings – Cheatham was born enslaved, and White, the son of a mother whom historians say was also likely enslaved – each worked hard to earn a university education before launching careers in teaching, law and ultimately public service.
The scholarship is a fully funded four-year award that covers the costs of tuition, student fees, housing, meals, textbooks, a laptop computer, supplies, travel and personal expenses. It also provides four summers of fully funded enrichment and networking opportunities that may include international travel and study. It is a truly complete award designed to recognize academic achievement and potential at the highest levels.
