NCSU scholarship honors Newtown child
Posted December 14, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina State University is honoring one of the children who died on Dec. 14, 2012 during the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The College of Veterinary Medicine at NC State has created a scholarship in honor of 6-year-old Charlotte Bacon.
According to her parents Joel and JoAnn Bacon, Charlotte never met an animal she didn’t love and wanted to be a veterinarian since age two.
The scholarship is available to NC State College of Veterinary Medicine students who have a track record of significant service to children in an educational or community setting.
Ashley Myers and Crystal Martinez have both received the Charlotte Bacon Veterinary Education Scholarship.
"I've always been interested and loved animals," Myers said. "Everything I can remember, I just always loved animals."
