KaDee Stogner wins Coca-Cola scholarship

Published or Revised July 05, 2006

KaDee Stogner of Honey Grove, a freshman student at Paris Junior College, has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.

Through the Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program, the Foundation awards a total of 400 scholarships annually to students attending higher-education institutions granting two-year degrees.

In April, one scholar from each state received a $2,000 scholarship from Coca-Cola through the New Century Scholar Program of the American Association of Community Colleges and Phi Theta Kappa, the two-year college scholastic honor society. On June 20, an additional 350 students were awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

All recipients have demonstrated academic success and participated in community service within the past 12 months.

“The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship program gives support and encouragement to an under-served population of college students,” said J. Mark Davis, president of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “These fine students, who often juggle school, work and family, continue to give back to their communities through volunteer service.”

The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship program is made possible with funding from the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation, which provides grants in support of human services initiatives. The late Joseph B. Whitehead was one of the original bottlers of Coca-Cola.
