Dear NCCU Supporters, Friends, Alumni:
It is with sincere appreciation for my Alma Mater and its uncompromising commitment to service and scholarship that I enter the “Mrs. Alumni” contest. The North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Alumni Association will formally recognize the contestant that generates the largest amount of contributions for the scholarship fund during the half-time show of the Homecoming game, October 30, 2004. Contributions to this campaign will provide competitive scholarship opportunities for students pursuing academic studies at NCCU. For this purpose, I extend this invaluable opportunity to invest in our leaders of tomorrow, today.
I am the daughter of Dr. Marion Gooding of Pasaic, New Jersey and Alphonse Gooding of St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Originally from St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, I moved to Durham, North Carolina in 1992 from Pennsylvania to attend North Carolina Central University. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics with a concentration in computer science in 1992. Furthering my education, I received a Master of Science in engineering with a major in computer science and a concentration in Artificial Intelligence in 1995. I am currently a computer scientist working for Computer Sciences Corporation in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. I am also the owner and president of Triangle WebWorks, a web development and web hosting company in RTP, North Carolina
