On Sunday, April 18, the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta came together in Mebane, NC to recognize the fraternity’s accomplishments and Brothers who received awards. This year, awards were presented for both the 2019-2020 year and the 2020-2021 year due to cancelation of last year’s Founder’s Day. Our keynote speaker was Brother Randy Foy who is an Alpha Zeta Alumni that graduated from NC State University in spring of 1990. He currently works as a personal finance representative in Goldsboro, NC. As he reflected on his time at NC State and in Alpha Zeta, one of his key points were to cherish the opportunities you have to build relationships with everyone you come in contact with.
