Katie again!

I graduated from NC State in 2021, but this was the first picture I ever took on campus when I enrolled in 2019.

My name is Katie Larrimore and I'm a first-year advisor serving at East Bladen High School in Bladen county, NC.

I graduated from NCSU with a degree in Social Work in 2021. Throughout undergrad I knew that I wanted to use my degree to make an impact in my community, wherever that may be. I'm so glad to have the opportunity to return to somewhere close to my hometown and serve students with NCSU's College Advising Corps.

Looking forward to this week's advisor takeover!
