In its first appearance in a national championship, the North Carolina A&T women’s bowling team didn’t disappoint.

The Aggies were crowned the 2015 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Team Champions (ITC), Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 win over Robert Morris at Northrock Lanes in Wichita, Kansas.

The ITC, first contested in 1975, is the pinnacle event of the college bowling season. The ITC brings together the top 16 men’s and top 16 women’s teams in the country to compete for national titles. They are mostly the top teams who came up short in their conference championships. USBC is the national governing body of bowling as recognized by the United States Olympic Committee.

“Accomplishing this goal was huge,” said head coach James Williams whose team finished the season 74-37. “With all of the individual awards from this year, it is awesome that the team accomplished this because no one ever remembers the individual accomplishments. But they remember the best team. This is something that no one can take from us. We will forever be national champions.” Read more

Now that the class of 2015 has turned its tassel, it’s time for the newly elected Student Government Association (SGA) to begin its tenure and the Austin Ogletree administration is ready.

“We have so many different personalities and interests represented,” Ogletree said. “We have the embodiment of North Carolina A&T State University in this administration.”

Ogletree, 21, is a junior industrial and systems engineering major from Barnesville, Georgia who pulled off the interesting feat of winning the presidency while doing co-op study with Johnson & Johnson in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

“The election started from day one – from the day I stepped on campus,” Ogletree said. “I knew I wanted to be a premiere leader on this campus. I think that my work as freshman class and sophomore class president definitely helped and running unopposed helped as well.”

He was able to take the week of elections off from his co-op to come back to campus and share with his fellow students his platform of “The Return of Aggie Pride.” Read more

Terrence J Gives Back to N.C. A&T

On Friday, April 24, 2015, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) celebrated a new campus holiday, Terrence J Day, named after the famed E! News co-host, actor, author, and 2004 graduate of the school of Journalism and Mass Communications (JOMC). Through a partnership with NBCUniversal, the Aggie Alum returned to his alma mater and presented the journalism department with a $100,000 donation.

“After hearing about what NBCUniversal did by partnering with A&T and donating $50,000 to the journalism department, I wanted to put my money where my mouth is and give back to the University that gave so much to me,” said Terrence J.

My fascination with Terrence J first began two years ago, when I tuned in to the music countdown show 106 and Park on Black Entertainment Television (BET). Goofy and charismatic, his charming personality as one of the hosts captivated me. He seemed so real—as if a cool, successful, older cousin. Read more

Two A&T Graduates Offer Lessons From The Future

Lessons from our future

By Aggie Press Staff

Two well-known N.C. A&T graduates, Terrence Jenkins (also known as Terrence J.) and Addie Whisenant, returned to their alma mater April 22 and 24 to deliver strategies for success and paying it forward.

Terrence Jenkins

Jenkins, a 2004 graduate of A&T’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, has emerged as a successful television entertainment host and appeared in several major films.  To pay homage to A&T, Jenkins donated $100,000 to establish an endowment for WNAA radio station where he once worked, and for the JOMC department.

Whisenant, a 2007 graduate, is director of African-America media for the White House’s Office of Communications. She returned to A&T as the Richard E. Moore guest lecturer, an annual lecture that honors the late Richard E. Moore, a former journalism professor and vice president of public relations for A&T. Moore passed 20 years ago in 1995.

Jenkins’ and Whisenant’s recipes for success?

Jenkins: “You’re going to get told ‘no.’ It’s how you take that ’no’ and use it to your advantage.”

Whisenant: “I waited four months” before being told I had the job. Friends told me not to apply, that it wasn’t for me. I didn’t listen.

When asked what is the one thing that A&T taught her, Whisenant replied, “Assertiveness.”

It was on Sunday, April 19, 2015 when one eager and passionate young journalist, for the first time in her life, was at a loss for words. In front of her—less than an arm’s length distance—stood the legendary and award-winning investigative reporter, foreign correspondent and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.

Staring in amazement, the young journalist recalled Cooper’s remarkable coverage of global political conflicts, natural disasters, and civil unrest. So, to finally meet a prominent individual who is living her dream, this young woman’s heart almost exploded when Mr. Cooper walked by, smiling, and said “Hello!” Read more

Spotlight: Women’s History Month

By Dele Odumosu

Aggie Press Guest Contributor

International Women's Day

Women’s History Month occurs every year in March to highlight the impactful women who have made a difference in society.

March 8, marks International Women’s Day, and is celebrated all over the world, and this month-long observation is primarily recognized in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. The first International Women’s Day took place in 1911 and later led to ‘Women’s History Week’ near the month of March, and by 1987, the week developed into a full-fledged, celebrated month.

With each passing year, more awareness and appreciation for Women’s History Month is raised, and numerous women are awarded, uplifted, and saluted for their efforts and contributions.

Although the month-long celebration has existed for 30 plus years, there remains a lack of awareness about this women-focused month among young people.

Many college students were unaware that March is Women’s History Month. Read more
