From the N.C. State Agriculturist, March 1946 issue
Charles K. McAdams, who has just been released from the Army, has returned to our campus to become assistant secretary to the Y.M.C.A. Charlie, a native of Mebane, graduated from State in 1942 in Agricultural Education.
While he was a student here, Charlie served as president of the Y.M.C.A., and he was a member of the Golden Chain, Alpha Zeta, Scabbard and Blade, and Kappa Phi Kappa. He was a very efficient member of The Agriculturist staff, and he served as a lieutenant-colonel in the R.O.T.C.
Before he received his discharge, Charlie was a captain in the infantry.
