Shirley Ort and Fred Clark are the founders and directors of the Carolina Covenant financial aid program. Ort is in charge of the university's financial aid department and Clark is a professor who has been teaching here for 47 years (teaches classes on Brazilian studies).

The Carolina Covenant program was founded ten years ago and is a need-based program that covers all school-related costs for the students it serves, including the cost of living. It has improved UNC's diversity and has served as a model for other financial aid programs around the country (however, Shirley pointed out that ours has been the most successful because many other schools who have tried it have dropped the program because it is so expensive).

A Ban Against Neglect had a booth at the Raleigh Convention Center Shopping Spree event held by the Junior League of Raleigh on Saturday. ABAN started out as a class project during co-founder Callie Brauel's study abroad trip in Ghana in 2008. She and the other co-founders were discouraged by the amount of trash they found in the area so they started a recycling program, especially for the plastic water packets the villagers used. Their accessory line started with coin purses made out of those plastic bags and has grown into a much larger venture now, with teams of seamstresses working on their new line of bags and jewelry (made out of recycled glass).

They started employing seamstresses when they realized that doing the production themselves was taking away from the time the teen moms they were helping had for their studies. The main goal is to use the profits from these accessories to help pay for education for the women enrolled in their program.

Callie and another study abroad student were working with teen moms during the initial recycling programs. 

"Seeing the situations these girls were going through, that they didn't really have any hope or future, in girls who were our age or younger, it just didn't seem fair." 

"Just even seeing that we've helped one woman is really remarkable."

Top This is celebrating eight successful months on Franklin Street. Owner Tom Schneider says, "The restaurant industry is very challenging, but it's in my blood and it's very gratifying when you can see someone eat your sandwich and walk out of here and know it's the best product they've ever had."
