2021 Celebration of Faculty Excellence

Alexander Quarles Holladay Medal for Excellence

In 1992, the Board of Trustees of NC State University established the Alexander Quarles Holladay Medal for Excellence to honor faculty whose careers demonstrated a dedication to sustained excellence. As NC State’s highest faculty award, the Holladay Medal for Excellence recognizes members of the faculty whose careers have demonstrated outstanding achievement and sustained impact in research, teaching, or extension and engagement. The award was named in honor of Alexander Quarles Holladay, NC State’s first Professor of History and its first President.
