During halftime of NC State’s Homecoming football game versus Clemson, Victor Eduardo was named the 2017 Leader of the Pack. Eduardo, a junior from Morrisville, North Carolina majoring in philosophy, is the sixteenth winner of the award.
The Leader of the Pack Program recognizes students who make outstanding contributions to NC State in the areas of leadership, scholarship, and community service. Finalists for the honor are selected based on grade-point average, a personal interview, co-curricular activities, written essays on their leadership and service to the community, and student-body vote.
On campus, Victor has worked as a resident mentor in the Exploratory Studies Village and as an orientation leader for New Student Programs to mentor and support first-year student transitions. He has also worked heavily on two major GLBT Center projects: a gender-inclusive restroom database and map, and an outreach project for high school GSA student clubs.
Recently he joined the leadership team for DEPTH, a grassroots peer-to-peer initiative working to facilitate difficult dialogues about diversity and inclusion on campus.
