Ashley Myers Scholarship created in memory of shooting victim

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."
