‘Belles of UNC’ help Wilmington celebrate history

By Sophie Kot and Tala Goudarzi

PJ Middleton, a future UNC student, sits in the gardens at Dudley Mansion in Historic Downtown Wilmington.

A few of the former belles are now UNC students,  including Carolina Connection’s Sophie Kot.

She teamed up with Tala Goudarzi for this story.
