— College Foundation, Inc. awarded up to $20,000 to a Wake County seventh-grader to encourage her college dreams.

Dulce Munoz, a student at Brogden Middle School, can collect $2,000 per year, from middle school through the fourth year of college, so long as she meets annual criteria.

Dulce is one of 10 statewide to winners in the second year of the Victor E. Bell, Jr. Scholarship program.

“Dulce is a great example of a star student. She is hard-working, helpful, positive and always ready to do her best," her teacher Kimica Davis said.

"She brought 110% to the classroom every single day and reminded me of the reason why I wanted to become a teacher. It is exciting to watch a student continue to grow and be excited about learning.”

    Dear teacher: It is impossible to bring 110% because 100% is the total of anything. You've been watching too many uneducated sports figures.

    Great story, and wonderful for the young lady. Too bad more kids doen't go to school with this same ready to learn attitudes...or their parents that involved in her education. But hen again, its hard to be involved when your kid is shipped off to the opposite side of the county for no good reason, it does make it hard for those who have no transportation and/or have to work!

    Brogden Middle School is in Durham not Raleigh. Congrats to the young lady!

    This is what teaching is about! Making a difference in the life of others. It is too bad that there are not more comments on this story!

    Congratulations to Ms. Munoz, her family, friends, and teachers! It does my heart good to read good news of any sort, but _especially_ about young people.
