    On Assignment | The Pillowcase Girls

    Last Friday, Agromeck had the pleasure of talking to two seniors in the College of Textiles about a project that played a large role in their time at NC State—The Pillowcase Project. Sara Lewis, a senior in fashion and textile management, and Carly Kvietok, a senior in fashion and textile design, work diligently every semester with a team of volunteers to create playful and fun pillowcases for the patients at the UNC Children’s Hospital. These two Park Scholars shared the origins of the project, and how it has grown into something big and meaningful to their lives. To learn more about Lewis and Kvietok’s story, purchase your copy of the…

    Photo of the Week | Sept. 24-28

    Latinx Heritage Month began in full swing Sept. 15 and has shown students the culture and liveliness of Latinx people. To honor that liveliness, this photo illustration was chosen by photo editor Kaydee Gawlik for Agromeck’s photo of the week. “This is kind of a common shot that can very easily be overdone or overused, but it knows what it is. It knows it’s a photo illustration,” said Gawlik. “This particular photo recognizes the many facets and colors that can be found  in the history and culture of Latinx Heritage Month and its respective community. When used sparingly, a photo illustration leaves little room for misinterpretation.” To learn more about the…

    Video of the Week | May 21-25

    When our leadership staff traveled to Bald Head Island for our leadership retreat given to us by Balfour, our adviser Martha Collins strongly encouraged Photo Editor Kaydee Gawlik to start experimenting with video for our social media and our website. Gawlik did just that, and created this short clip displaying what really goes on behind the scenes with the Agromeck staff: hard work and a little bit of chaos.

    On Assignment | Leadership Retreat

    This past week the 2018-2019 Agromeck leadership staff took a trip to Bald Head Island, North Carolina to partake in our annual leadership retreat. The staff spent four days on the island, courtesy of our book publisher, Balfour, building team bonds, brainstorming ideas for the next book, and sharpening our skills in our weaker areas in order to return to Raleigh stronger than we left it. Martha Collins, the Agromeck adviser, led the new leadership staff through a series of activities, including simple getting-to-know-you questions and a critique of the previous year’s book. She also facilitated a discussion about what makes a good leader and how we will lead the…

    Photo of the Week | Nov. 27 – Dec. 1

      This week’s Photo of the Week is courtesy of staff photographer David Tracey. He captured this great shot of senior Nicholas Lacy celebrating during the Wolfpack’s 33-21 victory over the UNCH-CH Tar Heels Saturday, November 25. Photo Editor Kaydee Gawlik had this to say about the photo:   “This is an awesomely timed photo. It’s also a great example of ‘right place right time’ because its nice and crisp, but also embodies the excitement in the last home game of the season against our not so distance rivals.”

    Photo of the Week | Oct. 23-27

    This week’s Photo of the Week comes from photo correspondent Emma Dimig, who attended the NCSU rifle team’s match against the Akron Zips on Saturday, Oct. 21. Photo Editor Kaydee Gawlik had this to say about Emma’s shot: “Rifle isn’t something that’s in town a lot, so to start off with current photos of our amazing team (I mean, we’ve got All-American team members, and some that went to the Olympics last year, so we’re pretty decent!!) is super rad. Even though you can’t see the concentration on Derya’s face, having the screen showing her accuracy next to her rigid position/form/pose helps to provide context to the event. There’s also…
