Home / Announcements / THS Student Named Goodnight Scholar


Connie Feinberg, THS 2017

The Goodnight Scholars Program is for North Carolina students who aspire to study in a science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) or a STEM-related discipline at North Carolina State University.  Students who are accepted into the program receive an annual scholarship valued at $19,500 per year for up to four years ($78,000 total).

The Goodnight Scholars Program was established in 2008 out of the philanthropic generosity of North Carolina natives and North Carolina State University alumni Dr. Jim Goodnight and Mrs. Ann Goodnight.  Dr. Jim Goodnight is the co-founder of global business analytic software at the Statistical Analysis System (SAS) Institute.  Mrs. Ann Goodnight is director of community relations at the SAS Institute and secretary for the North Carolina State University Board of Trustees.

“We are excited for Connie and her family on hearing she has received the prestigious Goodnight Scholarship to N.C. State University,” said Tuscola High School Principal, Travis Collins.  “The Goodnight Scholars Program is a great fit for Connie as she aspires to pursue a STEM-related career which in her own words will allow her to ‘help others.’  Connie is an exceptional student, a leader among her peers, and those of us on the hill know N.C. State just made a tremendous and wise investment in our future.”
