Connie Feinberg

2017 recipient of the 4-year-renewable Nathaniel Ellis Cannady, Jr. Scholarship, valued at $20,000, and the one-time Chuck D. Hargrove Memorial Scholarship, valued at $500. 

Connie Feinberg graduated as the salutatorian from Tuscola High School in Haywood County, where she was involved in numerous organizations such as Math Club, the Tye Blanton Foundation, National Honors Society, Student Government and International Club to name a few. After spending the summer before her junior year participating in Summer Ventures in Science and Math and taking the Mathematical Evolutions course, and then the summer following at the Governor’s School of North Carolina for math, she knew she was beginning to discover her passion. 

"Math and science are beautiful and elegant and like every beautiful thing they grow and mature and at a faster rate than has ever been seen in this day and age. I want to be a part of that growth, to be able to experience and contribute to the whirlwind of advancement for the rest of my life. When considering how to go about doing that, I looked into careers which would allow me to use math in order to explore the depths of science, while still encouraging creative problem solving. I came to a rather obvious conclusion: engineering."

"The Nathaniel Ellis Cannady, Jr. Scholarship and Chuck D. Hargrove Memorial Scholarship have both aided me in furthering my education and pursuing this dream at North Carolina State University. At NCSU I am currently a part of the Goodnight Scholars Program and the University Scholars Program and plan to be involved in the Photography Club, Astronomy Club, Student Government, and any other exciting opportunity I can be a part of."
