Nearly three years after her death, Eve Carson’s legacy on campus will be carried on by students who never knew her.
Late Sunday night, juniors Mark Clarke and Zach De La Rosa were selected as this year’s recipients of the Eve Carson Scholarship.
Clarke and De La Rosa are members of the first class of students who were not at UNC when Carson was killed in March 2008. But they said they still feel a connection to the former student body president.
“It’s in a very sort of general way, but I think Eve Carson embodied a lot about what was really great about the University,” said Clarke, an English major from Fairview.
De La Rosa, a mathematics and economics major from Raleigh, said in an e-mail that Carson’s legacy stretches from volunteer events to student discussions.
