Urban Restoration Enhancement Corporation is pleased to announce that Brandon Bell is the 2022 Ronnie Edwards Scholarship recipient. Bell is a 2022 graduate of Woodlawn High School. He is also a graduate of UREC’s ACT Prep bootcamp, which helped him raise his ACT score from 15 to 21, while introducing him to college-level instructors and expectations.
Bell, an accomplished student-athlete, graduated from Woodlawn with a 3.6 grade point average, and he will attend University of Louisiana at Lafayette where he will study electrical engineering.
“I’m excited to start my college journey at University of Louisiana at Lafayette,” Bell said. “I’m not aware of anyone in my family who has received a scholarship, so it helps me to know that I’m paving a way and setting a tone for my younger siblings. And for that, I have to say thank you.”
