Carol Frey, Alumna
Five years ago, I ended my 35-year career in daily newspaper journalism as an editorial writer for The News & Observer in Raleigh. My husband, Ed Miller, had been called out of military retirement to a job in Army readiness at the Pentagon and our daughter, then a junior at N.C. State, was more than capable of living at home with the dog and two cats. So for four years, I free-lanced in D.C., wrote a novel, and traveled back to Raleigh once a month or so. When the Army found a need for Ed at Ft. Bragg, we moved back home and the MALS program opened the opportunity for me to (finally) work on a master’s degree.
