NC State receives $2 million for agriculture leadership program

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University will receive a $2 million gift from the daughter of a former Sampson County teacher.

Gail and Joe Dunn, of Raleigh, plans to donate $2 million to establish the Adolph Warren Leadership Program Fund and Endowment.

Warren was a high-school agriculture teacher in Sampson County for 30 years and a 1952 graduate of CALS.

"Dad's passion and love for teaching agriculture followed him well beyond his years in the classroom," said Gail Dunn, Warren's daughter. "He loved life and lived it well, regardless of where his daily travels would find him. There weren't many places he went, in Sampson and surrounding counties, where he wasn't greeted with big smiles, warm strong handshakes and talk of special memories.”

The Warren Leadership Program will be a one-year program for sophomore, junior and senior CALS students who have demonstrated interest in future leadership in agriculture or public service.

Enrichment activities for the Warren Leadership Fellows will include government/public policy internships in the legislative and executive branches of state government; opportunities to participate in government/public policy experiences in Washington, D.C.; and campus-based leadership seminars, workshops and field trips that will enable students to meet with and learn from leaders in a variety of agriculture and public policy fields.

Warren Leadership Program will be selected through an application process, with preference given to students involved with FFA.
