How does an all-expense-paid honeymoon to a tropical paradise sound? NC State alumnus Darryl Willie could win just that as part of a CBS Early Show competition.

The show picked four couples to compete this week for a trip to Great Exuma Island in the BahamasWillie and his wife, Erica Westbrook, are among the lucky couples.

Willie ’02 was student body president during his senior year at NC State. After graduating from the College of Textiles, he went into the Teach for America program. He now works in student affairs at the University of California, Berkeley.

Willie has been married for five years. But due to hectic work schedules, Willie says he and his wife have not taken much of a honeymoon.

As part of the “Honeymoon Take 2” competition, Willie and his wife sang a duet and took part in a game show-style challenge testing their knowledge of one another.

The couples are competing all week, and judges will help determine the winner. At the end of each day, viewers get a chance to vote on the Early Show website. So vote early and often for a fellow Wolfpacker!

    D. Willie was my (now) husband’s RA on the 7th floor of Metcalf back in 1998/1999! Awesome awesome fellow, and a real get-it-done great guy! Who always wore a bow-tie. ;D
