This award has two (2) potential categories: Young Alumni (age 40 and under) and Overall Achievement (no class or age requirement).

The James Lassiter, Kenneth Lee and Floyd McKissick Sr. Trailblazer Award recognizes an outstanding black alumnus, from the classes of 1952- 1972, who paved the way for African-Americans at Carolina as well as made outstanding contributions to their community.

The Harvey E. Beech Outstanding Senior Award recognizes an African-American graduating senior who exemplifies a strong academic record, excellent leadership ability, positive community service/volunteer work and a demonstrated desire to strengthen the bond between current students and alumni.**
