About Chantal Warfield

Chantal loved reading from an early age and was always willing to lend a helping hand. While a student at NC State, she was deeply engaged in the College of Education and broader campus community. After graduating in May 2019, she became a college advisor at Pender High School in Burgaw as part of the university’s College Advising Corps. After spending two years as a college advisor, she planned to earn her master’s in library science.

Because of Chantal’s commitment to address the inequities that disproportionately impact low-income, first generation and underrepresented student populations, this program will place students in rural and high needs communities to continue honoring her commitment.
