Nicole Wright, Alcoa’s community relations coordinator in central North Carolina, recently had the opportunity to catch up with two recent scholarship recipients during a dinner at Pfeiffer.
Sandra Jimenez-Guillermo, a sophomore from Burlington, NC, is majoring in Biology. She is planning to go to pre-vet school and would eventually like to work in a zoo or find a job caring for small animals.
Samir AlSamarraee, a sophomore from Greensboro, NC, is majoring in Biology with a minor in Psychology. He plans to become an anesthesiologist. In addition to attending school, Samir is currently working two jobs.
“Both students couldn’t say enough about their love for Pfeiffer – the quality education, the great staff and the family feel of that school,” Wright said. “Alcoa is proud to support students like Sandra and Samir and help them pursue their college education.”
During the tour, Wright was impressed with Pfeiffer’s long-term planning and the renovation of many historic buildings on campus.
