ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A Roanoke City middle schooler is celebrating a summer full of stories.

In a surprise presentation, Molly Murdock learned Monday she was the grand prize winner of the school district’s summer reading program.

That means she is taking home a $500 Amazon gift card.

The soon-to-be seventh grader said she loves to read and already knows what part of her money will go toward.

"Well I definitely want to get some books with it, but I don't know about the rest," Murdock said.

Roanoke City Public Schools said in total they had more than 200 winners and gave out more than $11,000 in prizes.
