For Lyndon Bowen, achieving academic success is just the beginning of his mission to impact the world. Bowen started classes at North Carolina Central University as a third-year undergraduate after earning course credits at J.D. Clement Early College High School on campus.
In 2019, Bowen was honored by the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities as a HBCU Competitiveness Scholar.
He has worked as an intern for Johnson & Johnson, Eli Lily and Company, Duke University Press, and Duke University’s Office of Information Technology, among others. But he not only credits NCCU for his on-the-job skills, he said the university taught him much more.
