The College Welcomes Three New EC Scholars!

The College of Engineering and Technology has three new EC Scholars it can call its own.

EC Scholars is the most prestigious undergraduate award program offered at East Carolina University. The four-year merit scholarship recognizes outstanding academic performance, commitment to community engagement and strong leadership skills. Recipients receive an Honors College scholarship for four years, along with a stipend for study abroad, for a total value of almost $62,000.

Zachary Barnett is a French and biomedical engineering major and is from Pittsboro, North Carolina. He wants to be an innovative, entrepreneur once he finishes at ECU. You can read more about Zachary here.

Joshua Gurganus is also a biomedical engineering major and is from Greenville, North Carolina. Before he enters as a freshman in August, he’s going to get certified as a pharmacy technician. Here is his story.

Winterville’s Jiahao Li will either be a mechanical or biomedical major when he’s done with his undergraduate work. Before that, however, he plans to be an ambassador of STEM education in eastern North Carolina. Here is Jiahao’s story.

Congratulations to Zachary, Joshua and Jiahao.
