On May 5th, Justine Hollingshead will have more to celebrate than just Cinco de Mayo. NC State will be lighting the Memorial Belltower red in her honor to celebrate being selected as a 2015 Governor’s Award for Excellence recipient. All are welcome to join Justine at 8:00 p.m. on May 5th at the WXYZ Lounge at the Aloft hotel, directly across from the Belltower. The lighting should occur between 8 – 8:30 p.m.
Since its completion in 1937, the Memorial Tower has stood as a symbol of identity for North Carolina State University, a timekeeper for tradition and a perpetual memorial to NC State students who gave their lives in defense of their country. As well as a memorial, the tower is a rallying point for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the university community.
The Belltower is lighted for holidays that honor our veterans, such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day, and to celebrate NC State’s proudest occasions and achievements.
