40 Under 40

40 Under 40 Leadership Awards 

In April of 2015, the Division of Student Affairs of East Carolina University premiered the 40 Under 40 Leadership Awards. This award was created in an effort to recognize emerging leaders that received their start at East Carolina University, as well as those who have used their ECU experiences to make significant impacts in their respective professions, local communities, and on the world.


The 40 Under Leadership Awards committee, comprised of alumni and staff worked diligently to complete a very competitive selection process for this year's recipients. All of the nominees were exceptionally accomplished, committed leaders, making the committee's decision extremely challenging.

It is with great Pirate Pride that we ask you to join us in congratulating the Class of 2018 40 Under 40 Leadership Award Honorees!
