Through this program, Charity matches one CALS alumni with one CALS student for one academic year of career coaching. The goal of the CALS Alumni for Student Success Career Coaching Program is to see students reach their career goals and provide alums with an opportunity to give back to the college. Prior to graduate school, Charity graduated with her undergraduate degree from NC State in May 2023, and spent that time interning as a Peer Career Coach, playing on the NC State Club Softball Team, and participating in other clubs and activities. Charity’s passion for agriculture, helping others succeed, and incorporating communication and outreach transitioned her well into her graduate assistantship as she works with both CALS students and CALS alumni.

Her role through the ACP is to coordinate with the ACP faculty supervisor to perform any administrative or managerial duties.
