The Philadelphia Chapter of the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Alumni Association was reorganized on July 1, 1954. At that time, NCCU was known as North Carolina College at Durham. The late Maurice Unthank was the Chapter’s first president. For 56 continuous years, the Chapter has remained committed to the University’s motto of “Truth and Service”. The Philadelphia Chapter was first organized during the program year of 1947 _ 1948. Due to a variety of reasons, including competing priorities, the Chapter did not remain active. With the reorganization in 1954, the Chapter soared like a mighty “Eagle”.

The Chapter has sponsored many activities and programs through the years in order to raise funds for scholarships and other initiatives sponsored by the University. In addition to sending funds to the University for Scholarships, the Chapter has provided scholars to local students enrolled at NCCU.

Committed alumni have stood together for 56 continuous years! We thank all who came before us and all who continue to work. We know that the Eagle is “no ordinary barnyard fowl”. We continue to soar and continue to recruit other Eagles to soar with us. We have been mightily blessed and are eternally thankful.
