Josiah Hall

Sameer Murarka Scholar and NC State Entrepreneurship Scholar


Josiah Hall is a senior studying business supply chain in the Poole College of Management. His goal is to leverage business profits, expertise, and connections to serve those affected by systemic injustices in the United States and abroad. Just over three years ago he founded and continues to operate “Clean-Cut Junk”, which hauls junk away from people’s homes.

He currently serves as a YoungLife leader at the Neighbor to Neighbor community center in downtown Raleigh. Neighbor to Neighbor serves at-risk youth through education and is involved with several entrepreneurial enterprises including moving, landscaping, and catering. He has been able to be involved in this organization on a variety of levels, always focused on building relationships with the kids in the community.

In addition, he is the president of the Club Basketball team at NC State. In that role, he will be recruiting new team members, defining the two competitive teams, arranging tournaments, planning travel, and managing the club team funds – and playing point guard on the team!

Josiah said ‘Receiving this scholarship makes me feel valued and supported for pursuing a unique career path. I am grateful to be apart of this cohort!”
