Selected NACME Scholars will engage with high-level corporate executives. This special program will consists of three one-hour meetings with a mentor (virtually or in person). Two eligible NACME Scholars per academic year will be paired with Rodney C. Adkins, a retired IBM executive, and Georgia Institute of Technology alumnus.

Inducted into the National Academy of Engineering in 2005, Mr. Adkins is also a member of the Executive Leadership Council, and the National Society of Black Engineers, which in 2001 awarded him the Golden Torch Award for Lifetime Achievement in Industry.
