More than 65 alumni and friends came out last night to meet Chancellor Randy Woodson at The Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem.

The chancellor and his wife, Susan, talked with alumni at the estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Also in attendance were NC State Alumni Association Executive Director Benny Suggs ’69, Alumni Association Board of Directors President Judi Grainger ’72, Alumni Association board member Gary Upchurch ’76 of Greensboro, Alumni Association Yadkin County network leaders Virgil Dodson ’69 and Walter Smith ’76, and Alumni Association Forsyth County network leaders Peter Blutreich ’90, Neil Robbins ’01 and Ron Spivey ’82.

In Washington, Grainger and Alumni Association board member Brenda Flory ’87 spoke to the crowd about the benefits of membership and introduced Chancellor Woodson at the reception at the Grand Hyatt Washington.
