Description:
This recording was conducted in the StateView Hotel on Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the Caldwell Fellows 50th Anniversary Gala. Gerald Hawkins and Janice Odom discuss their experiences as former and current Directors of the Caldwell Fellows Program respectively. Hawkins reflects on the beginnings of the program in 1968, and pays tribute to Dr. Banks C. Talley Jr., and discusses how the experiential learning within the program is of particular benefit for rural and first-generation students. Hawkins also shares that alumni of the program continue to be heavily involved, and now lead new cohorts of Fellows. Odom reflects on service learning trips and other opportunities which expand global awareness - often working with alumni of the program. Both speak to the exceptional ways alumni practice service leadership; note that over 300 alumni travelled back for the 50th Anniversary Gala; and speak to the ways that directing the program has been personally rewarding.
