Super Scholar: Kimball senior perseveres through tragedy on way to bright future (video)


Kimball High School senior Breyelle Bradley was recently awarded one of three Sulentic Family Scholarships at the annual Dallas ISD scholarship ceremony.

Bradley was born in New Orleans, but her mother passed away shortly after her birth. Raised by her grandmother, Bradley learned the value of hard work and resiliency from a young age.

After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, Bradley and her grandmother moved to Dallas to start a new life. Her grandmother passed away in 2014, but the work ethic that she instilled in Bradley continues to be a major factor in her success.

“She’s got a great will to succeed,” said Kimball Spanish teacher Frank Diaz. “If she runs for President, I would not be surprised.”

Bradley plans to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio in the fall and major in biology, with a goal of becoming a surgeon.
