The Goodnight Ambassadors

They are the smiling faces at college fairs. They are the informative and enthusiastic guest speakers at high schools and community colleges. They are the friendly voice that recipients hear when invited to join the Goodnight Scholars Program. They are the public face of the Goodnight Scholars community.

KODY JEFFERSON ‘21

As an ambassador, I had the opportunity to not only visit high schools and attend college fairs to present about GSP, but also personally meet prospective students and families, notify selected finalists about their acceptance into the program, and simply share my passion and pride in being a part of the Goodnight community.

BHAIRAVY PUVIINDRAN ‘22

Leadership roles like this have given Bhairavy the confidence to pursue opportunities beyond NC State including an REU in wireless health at the University of Virginia in the summer of 2019.

The STEM Coaches

Seeing the spark in a child’s eyes when they learn about structural engineering concepts using LEGO never gets old for STEM coaches. Hearing the collective gasp of a classroom when creating a colorful chemical reaction is a soundtrack worth keeping on loop. Those a-ha moments are the currency of the STEM Coach experience, and our STEM coaches are filthy rich with it.

VITUS PUTRA ‘22

In every STEM Coach session, the most awesome feeling is seeing the excitement and sense of wonder in each child whenever they manage to solve different kinds of problems and create amazing projects.

VITUS PUTRA ‘22

While Vitus has accomplished a lot at NC State, he will be the first to tell you that his greatest achievement was winning the inaugural Goodnight Scholars Charades competition at the 2019 All Goodnight Meeting while representing Team Boston!
