Current Executive Director Blake Hauser shares why she does what she does here:

“Carolina has so many talented students, and I consider it a privilege to get to interact with a few of them and reward their spectacular accomplishments. I love being a part of an organization that brings together such passionate and driven individuals and then empowers these students to pursue their passions. Eve Carson described ideal Carolina students as ‘Seeking to be great, but always remembering that we must be good.’ I believe that the Eve Carson Scholarship honors that balance between achieving greatness and being a force for good in the campus community, and I am proud to serve on its Executive Committee.”

  • Being the Public Face of the Scholarship;
  • Fostering the long-term growth and financial sustainability of the Scholarship;
  • Ensuring Eve’s legacy continues through the Scholarship’s actions;
  • Serving as a member of the Selection Committee;
  • Serving as the Executive Committee’s liaison to Internal Advisory Board;
  • Fostering an enjoyable, cohesive environment among the Executive Committee;
  • Facilitating smooth and productive transitions between Executive Committees;

  • Creating and Managing new initiatives for the Scholarship;
