Culver Girls Academy senior Erin Thomas has been named a Coca-Cola Scholar for 2015. Thomas is one of 150 seniors who will receive a $20,000 award that will be distributed over their four-year college careers. She will be formally recognized during a special weekend at Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta on April 3-5.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation supports more than 1,400 college students each year, with scholarships of $3.4 million through two nationally recognized programs on behalf of the Coca-Cola System. Scholarship recipients excel academically and in service to others. Most Coca-Cola Scholars share a passion for social justice and many have overcome tremendous challenges to pursue their dreams.
High school seniors throughout the United States who meet the eligibility requirements may apply for one of Coca-Cola’s four-year, achievement-based scholarships. The application for the scholarship will reopen in August when the 2016 program cycle begins.
