August 23, 2019

Dear Eagle Community,

It is with heartfelt sadness that I share that a member of our newest class of incoming Eagles has passed away.

First-year student Ms. Aniya Miles, 18, passed away yesterday, Aug. 22, due to a health-related issue while at home with her mother in Henderson, N.C. She attended Northern Vance Senior High School and her intended major at NCCU was Criminal Justice.

The cause of Ms. Miles’ death is unknown at this time. Funeral arrangements will be shared once finalized.

The Counseling Center is open and available for students who would like to speak with a counselor (hours of operation: Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. at 919-530-7646 and after hours at 919-530-6106). Additional services are available at The Office of Spiritual Development and Dialogue Monday through Friday, by calling 919-602-6967.

NCCU will share more information once it becomes available.

Please keep Ms. Miles mother, Ms. Jacquetta Williams, and her entire family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely difficult time.

Johnson O. Akinleye
