By: Lydian Bernhardt / 03/10/2021 Alumni, College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University alumnus Michael S. Regan ’98, secretary of the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality and an alumnus of the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, was confirmed today in a historic Senate vote as administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The earth and environmental sciences graduate becomes the first Black man and first alumnus of a historically black college or university to lead the agency.

During his tenure as the North Carolina’s top environmental official, Regan, 44, led a landmark multi-billion dollar coal ash cleanup by Duke Energy. He also worked with a largely Republican General Assembly on such projects as extending the power grid to rural communities and rebuilding the state’s eastern agricultural operations in the wake of several devastating hurricanes. Under his leadership, the DEQ also levied a $13-million fine against Chemours Co. for allowing the chemical GenX into the Cape Fear River.

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University alumna Kelly Richmond Pope, Ph.D., has been named one of the 25 Most Powerful Women in Accounting for 2020 by The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and CPA Practice Advisor.

Her research led her in 2017 to direct and produce the award-winning documentary “All the Queen’s Horses,” which explored the largest municipal fraud in U.S. history and screened on Netflix. It premiered as the No. 1 on-demand documentary on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and DirecTV when it debuted on those platforms in April 2018. She also delivered a TED Talk, “How whistle-blowers shape history,” in 2018.

Pope received her B.S. in accounting from N.C. A&T in 1996 before earning her Master of Accountancy in 1997 and doctoral degree in accounting in 2001 from Virginia Tech. She is an associate professor in the School of Accountancy and Management Information Systems at DePaul University in Chicago, where she teaches managerial and forensic accounting

Celebration Bowl 2017

Brief info on the Bowl Game

The Celebration Bowl is a postseason college football game featuring the conference champions from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). The event’s mission is to provide the schools, alumni, fans, and sponsors with a first-class bowl experience while continuing to celebrate the heritage, legacy, pageantry and tradition of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

It is managed by ESPN Events, a subsidiary of ESPN, which owns and operates a large portfolio of collegiate sporting events worldwide, including 13 postseason bowl games. ESPN partners with The 100 Black Men of Atlanta to manage the game’s ancillary events, which include a Youth Symposium, Robotics Showcase, Gospel Night and Fan Experience. John Grant serves as the Celebration Bowl’s Executive Director.

The Celebration Bowl was announced at the College Football Hall of Fame in March of 2015. The event got off to a rousing start in its inaugural year as North Carolina A&T defeated Alcorn State 41-34 in front of over 35,000 fans at the Georgia Dome. An additional 14.8 million people (2.56 million average) watched around the country on ABC..
