Greetings,

On behalf of the state of North Carolina, it is a pleasure to offer warm greetings to everyone
attending UNCF’s An Evening of Stars® Tribute, in honor of Floyd and Norma Young. It is my
privilege to welcome you to this worthwhile event to benefit historically black colleges and
universities (HBCUs) in North Carolina and to join you in recognizing the Youngs and their
contributions to the city of Charlotte and beyond.

I am honored to serve as State Honorary Chair of the North Carolina UNCF campaign, which
brings together community, corporate and givernment agencies and organizations to raise
greatly needed funds for students. North Carolina is committed to ensuring that all of our
children leave school career or college-ready, and today’s efforts will go a long way to providing
resources for students to pursue a college education, regardless of circumstance.

Since 1865 when Shaw University opened its doors, North Carolina’s HBCUs have been a
source of pride and distinction. Graduates from these prestigious schools can be found in every
profession and are leaders in our communities and on the national stage. Your support is helping
to continue a tradition of excellence in education. Bob and I are so pleased to be a part of helping
UNCF make dreams come true.

Best wishes for health and happiness.

Sincerely,




Bev Perdue
Governor
State of North Carolina
Greetings,

On behalf of the superb UNCF Tribute Leadership Committee, it is a pleasure to welcome you to
UNCF’s An Evening of Stars® Tribute honoring our wonderful friends Floyd and Norma Young, own-
ers of FDY, Inc. Thank you for sharing our commitment of supporting UNCF and its 39-member
institutions.

Our youth deserve a chance to develop their creativity, realize their potential and make a difference.
They hold the solutions to our community’s challenges. UNCF helps provide the environment that
will encourage the minds of deserving young people through a challenging academic experience that
will create the launch pad to their success. UNCF students will emerge well prepared to be valued
leaders in all fields of endeavor.

Your generous support helps to provide opportunities to many who might not otherwise have them.
Thank you for believing in UNCF and the futures of those you will aid tonight. Their achievements will
make global impacts that will be recognized in numerous communities for decades to come.

Again, on behalf of UNCF’s Tribute Leadership Committee, welcome, and we are glad you are here.
With your participation, you help move a college education from mere hope to an achievement.

Kind regards,



Carlenia Ivory
Chairperson
UNCF An Evening of Stars® Tribute
Leadership Committee
Greetings,

On behalf of the UNCF, our 39-member colleges and universities, and the more than 3,500 students
from North Carolina who are attending UNCF schools and/or receiving UNCF support, welcome to
UNCF’s An Evening of Stars® Tribute honoring Floyd and Norma Young. They are two of the absolute
best people I know, and certainly they are two of the most humble and generous souls on this earth!

Your presence this evening demonstrates a commitment to ensuring that our member institutions are
able to provide a quality education and that deserving talented young people like Kneisha Gabriel, have
an opportunity to achieve their dreams of a college education.

With the support of corporations, foundations and individuals like all of you here tonight, many of our
students have become today’s leaders in business, education, medicine, government and many other
areas that affect all of our lives each day.

To all of our kind and generous sponsors and community partners, thank you for your commitment to
UNCF and tonight’s event! A heartfelt thanks to Gov. Beverly Perdue, our state honorary chair, and all
of our honorary co-chairs for leading and serving as ambassadors for UNCF.

Tonight’s event would not be what it is without the leadership of our chair, Carlenia Ivory, and UNCF’s
Tribute Leadership Committee as well as our entire cadre of committed volunteers. Together, your en-
ergy, vision and strategic leadership continues to move UNCF successfully forward to meet the challenge
of educating future leaders.

Continue to believe “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,”® and because of that belief, continue to sup-
port UNCF. Thank you, and enjoy the evening!

Sincerely,




Marilyn Baldwin Richards

            Take 10 SECONDS : Give $10
            Help a student graduate from college
            The recession has hit UNCF students hard. Layoffs and pay cuts
            have reduced families’ contributions to college. The credit crunch
            has squeezed private student loan programs off the market. UNCF’s
            Campaign for Emergency Student Aid is here for them.
                                  And you can help.
                                  Take 10 seconds, and give $10 to help a UNCF
                                  student take the last step to get a college degree.
