Moziqe Howard – Scholar Highlight

Greetings, my name is Moziqe Howard and I am currently a junior at North Carolina Central
University studying Business administration with a concentration in Human Resources. My college experience thus far has been unexplainable. I have improved my social networking skills, communication skills, and met some wonderful individuals who have a great impact on my life. I am grateful and honored to be an Alumni Association scholarship recipient. And I am even more honored to be a part of the Alumni Association family. Overall, I am the most honored to represent Washington, DC at North Carolina Central University. My name is Moziqe Howard and I am just getting started!

The NCCU Alumni Association will resume the contest this year whether homecoming is held in-person or virtually on November 6, 2021.  The 2021-22 Mr. and Ms. Alumni contest officially starts on January 15, 2021. 

The 2019 contest was an epic year for our Alumni Scholars Scholarship where we raised $68,000 dollars for students. This year we would like to exceed this amount by raising $70,000.  To do this, we need your support. We are asking individuals to sign up to compete.

Due to Homecoming 2020 being canceled we will not hold a raffle this year.
