North Carolina Central University receives endowment fund
A North Carolina Central University graduate, who wishes to remain anonymous, has presented the school's Department of Criminal Justice with a gift of $25,000 in honor of her late fiancé, Averner Blue Jr.
Blue, who passed away last year, graduated from Newton High School in 1982. He attended Roanoke-Chowan College in Murfreesboro, N.C., until he enlisted in the U.S. Army. After serving four years in the military, he returned to college and subsequently received his Warrant Officer Certification from Sussex County Community College in Newton, N.J.
