On Thursday, September 8th, the NCSU College Republicans hosted NC State Alumni E.C. Sykes, who is the forefront Republican candidate for NC Senate, District 18.
Sykes started his time on the floor strong. He informed us about his connections and history at NC State with a heart warming story about how his parents met many decades ago right around Cates Avenue and Morrill Drive (Close to the entrance of Talley Student Union). He also shared his experiences as the CEO and President of Nasdaq and Fortune 500 companies as well as small businesses with less than 1000 employees. All the while his passion for public service has shown itself as he served on a hospital board and has been active in his church. His extensive resume helped him work on Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, operating as a national executive and helping to coordinate events with faith-based organizations.
