Congratulations to IHS senior Lilly van Gaal who was recently named as a Semifinalist for the Coca-Cola Scholars Program. Lilly was chosen based on her academic performance, leadership, and community service. In the spring, 150 finalists will be named; these students will each receive scholarships worth $20,000.
The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation exists to bring better to the world through investment in exceptional high school students who are dedicated to leadership, service, and action that positively affects others.
To celebrate Coca-Cola’s centennial in 1986, The Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola bottlers came together to fund the Coca−Cola Scholars Foundation. This commitment to education enables the Foundation to support over 1,400 college students each year, with annual scholarships of $3.4 million through two nationally recognized programs on behalf of the Coca-Cola System.
The mission of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation is to provide scholarship programs and lifelong enrichment opportunities in support of exceptional peoples’ thirst for knowledge and their desire to make a difference in the world.
Preparing Champions for Life!
