Where is Wes?

Wes is at our newest location off campus! Coastal Federal Credit Union recently donated a 6,300 square-foot building to North Carolina Wesleyan College.  Located at 2900 N. Wesleyan Blvd. in Rocky Mount about one mile from the main campus, the building is now home to the Advancement, Alumni Relations and Institutional Research departments of the College.

Rotary Club Scholarship Recipients

The Rotary Club of Rocky Mount recently awarded scholarships to six NC Wesleyan students using proceeds from the club’s annual signature project, Tackle the Tar 5K obstacle race which raises funds to “send local students to local colleges.”

Scholarship recipients must be residents of Nash or Edgecombe counties; demonstrate qualities of leadership, good citizenship, community spirit, and academic progress; maintain a 2.75 GPA or higher; and must be in their second year of study or higher.

NC Wesleyan College Rotary Scholarship recipients for 2017 are pictured left to right:  Sydney Jackson, Junior; Kelsee Whitley, Sophomore; Marjorie De Carmen, Senior; William Clontz, Sophomore; Carmen Richardson, Senior; and Tiara Dixon, Junior.  Congratulations to all Bishop recipients!
