FSU Figures Prominently in Fayetteville Observer’s 40 Under 40 List FSU Alumni, Faculty Honored
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on August 15, 2022

Fayetteville State University (FSU) alumni and faculty comprise nearly 25% of The Fayetteville Observer’s 2022 class of 40 Under 40. Of the more than 250 nominations received, eight FSU alumni and an academic coach/director from FSU’s Upward Bound College Access Program were among the 40 honorees.

The Fayetteville Observer has celebrated the community’s best and brightest young professionals through the 40 Under 40 award for 12 years. The list is designed to spotlight those who excel in their professional roles and serve their communities.

“It is so gratifying to see Fayetteville State alumni and leaders recognized for their incredible talent, drive and contributions to our community,” said FSU Chancellor Darrell T. Allison. “Our goal is to support and prepare our students for rewarding and fulfilling careers after college; these are just a few of the many amazing people of FSU who are making a difference wherever they are.”

The Fayetteville Observer noted that this year’s inductees are accomplished professionals in their respective fields but set themselves apart with their passion for giving back. They all acknowledge the important role family, friends and mentors have played in molding them into the successful, dedicated people they are today.

While varied in their professions, which include education, law enforcement, medicine and real estate, this year’s class of inductees are all similarly successful professionals who demonstrate leadership in their fields. FSU alumni/leaders included in the 2022 list are:
