CHARLOTTE, N.C.  –  In conjunction with the 2022 Subway ACC Football Championship Game, the Atlantic Coast Conference has named 15 student-athletes as recipients of the 2022 Go Teach Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway. Sophomore swimmer Gloria Muzito was selected as the winner from Florida State.

Each will receive $2,500 on behalf of the CFP Foundation and Dr Pepper to assist in their continued pursuit of a degree or career in education. And in the coming weeks, one recipient will win the Grand Prize of an additional $10,000 in tuition support. The 15 student-athletes were chosen by campus representatives, and the Grand Prize winner will be selected by the ACC’s award committee.

The CFP Foundation and Dr Pepper are committed to growing the Go Teach initiative to place qualified teachers in classrooms across the nation. The CFP Foundation and Dr Pepper are awarding a collective $1.5 million in tuition to the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC conference partners to provide support and recognition for student-athletes majoring in education.

A native of Sundvall, Sweden, Muzito is a freestyle specialist, majoring in elementary education. As a freshman in 2021-22, Muzito was named to the All-ACC Academic Team, ACC Honor Roll, and earned CSCAA Scholar All-America honorable mention. She competed at the NCAA Championships, helping the Seminoles set the school record in the 400 free relay.

In her sophomore season, Muzito has led the Noles to a 5-1 record, which includes wins over Georgia Tech and Miami.

“We are so happy for Gloria,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “She is an incredible athlete and teammate with tremendous character. She is very deserving of this award and is the perfect student-athlete to represent Florida State for this honor.”
