Alumna Awarded Prestigious Honor

Lauretta H. Holloway

Lauretta H. Holloway, ’74, ’76, has been awarded the 2018 Council for Advancement and Support of Education (Case District III) Bill Franklin Volunteer of the Year Award. The award honors individuals who play a vital role in institutional advancement. Holloway was recognized for her overall volunteer contributions and the long-term support of North Carolina Central University.

Holloway established an endowed scholarship that provides awards to students in the School of Education at NCCU. The Lauretta H. Holloway Endowed Scholarship and The Lauretta Holloway Teacher Assistance Fund both support future educators.

Holloway and her husband, NCCU Trustee Kevin Holloway, have a strong passion for NCCU’s Department of Athletics. Under her leadership in 2014, NCCU Athletics hosted the “Ladies Night Out” Fashion Show and Auction in collaboration with the Director of Athletics Women's Network (DAWN). Following the success and contributions generated by the event, “Ladies Night Out” is now in its third year and has become an annual event planned and spearheaded by  Holloway.

In preparation for her 40th class reunion in 2015, Holloway volunteered to serve as co-coordinator. As co-coordinator, she organized events and spearheaded a giving campaign that raised more than $186,179 in support to the university.

Holloway earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and master’s degree in special education from NCCU. Prior to her retirement, she served as a secondary educator in school systems in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Missouri and Indiana for more than 30 years. Her daughters, Kevonne and Lanetta are also graduates of NCCU’s School of Business.
