— 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.”
