Congratulations to seniors, Tia Alchureiqi and Milo Golding, on being two of the 2022 Coca-Cola Scholar Semifinalists!

1,617 students were selected from more than 68,000 applicants from across the country to continue through the selection process based on their academic excellence, leadership, and service demonstrated in school and community activities. 

“Milo and Tia are two extraordinary young adults who have devoted themselves to making a difference in the lives of others. They are a shining example for others to follow," said Dr. Cassondra Koett, LCA High School Principal.

Students are currently submitting their semifinalist applications to be reviewed by the Coca-Cola  Program Reading Committee. After this review, 250 will advance as Regional Finalists, with 150 becoming Coca-Cola Scholars and receiving a $20,000 college scholarship.

A joint effort of Coca-Cola bottlers across the country and The Coca-Cola Company, the Coca-Cola Scholars Program is the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship program in the United States. With the addition of the 2022 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,600 Coke Scholars nationwide with more than $78 million in scholarships over the course of 34 years.
