Eve Marie Carson

Eve Carson was elected student body president in 2007 in a runoff election where she garnered 55 percent of the vote. With close to a month left of her term, the Athens, Ga. native was kidnapped and killed on March 5, 2008. 

Carson was born Nov. 19, 1985 in Athens to Bob and Teresa Carson. She has one brother, Andrew. She was president of her high school student body and a recipient of the prestigious Morehead-Cain Scholarship. She was offered scholarships at Princeton and Yale universities, but chose UNC because she wanted to attend a public school. At UNC, she was a North Carolina Fellow, a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society and was double majoring in political science and biology.

As student body president, Carson served on the Board of Trustees and on the committee that conducted the search for a chancellor to replace James Moeser. She traveled to Wyoming, Ecuador and Egypt during her Morehead-Cain summer experiences. She tutored students at Frank Porter Graham Elementary School and Githens Middle School and worked with Girls on the Run.
