Students are nominated by their college administrators and are selected based on outstanding academic rigor, grade point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service. The Coca-Cola Academic Team is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.
“The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial assistance to outstanding students at community college,” said J. Mark Davis, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa and make it possible for deserving students to achieve their educational goals.”
Students will be recognized in All-State Academic Team recognition ceremonies held in 39 states, in addition to ceremonies held on their local college campuses. Attending scholars were also recognized during Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention, PTK Catalyst, April 19-21 in Kansas City, Missouri.
“We thank the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for recognizing these student leaders and for investing in their futures,” said Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, President and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “Scholarships like these are integral to the success of these students in reaching their educational and career goals.”
