Three Falcons of Saint Augustine’s University who interned with the North Carolina Department of Transportation this past summer were congratulated by Governor Pat McCrory. They are E'nasia Peterson, a senior business administration major from Ft. Washington, Md.; Henry Capers, a junior political science major from Raeford, NC; and Ronald Moore, a senior criminal justice major from Greensboro, NC.
The governor hosted the Falcons at the executive mansion on August 14 along with other students from Elizabeth City State University, Shaw University, North Carolina Central University, Bennett College and Winston-Salem State University. The interns served in various NCDOT departments throughout the state, including the DMV, Governor’s Highway Safety Program, Aviation and Information Technology.
“It’s these kinds of programs that are helping fuel our economic recovery by providing our students with the skills they will need to solve problems of the future and instill the value of public service in the next generation of engineers, managers, aviation specialists, information technology experts and more,” said Governor McCrory. “I want to thank all of the interns, their academic advisers and parents for going the extra mile by participating in this summer program, and I’m proud of the partnership between NCDOT and Historically Black Colleges and Universities.”
While thanking the students for their service to the state, Governor McCrory also highlighted accomplishments of North Carolina’s 11 HBCUs and several HBCU alumni who serve in the governor’s administration.
