Linke chosen for next level in scholarship program

ATLANTA – Nathan Linke, a student at Woonsocket High School, has been named a semifinalist for the 2018 class of the Coca-Cola Scholars Program. With the addition of the 2018 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,000 Coke Scholars nationwide with over $66 million in scholarships over the course of 30 years.
“As a premier scholarship provider, we recognize our role in helping young people achieve their college goals,” said Mark Davis, President of the Foundation. “The economy continues to affect many students’ ability to attend the college of their choice, so it is critical we continue to stay the course. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation received over 90,000 applications this year, and the semifinalists are truly some of the most accomplished students in the country.”
Linke ranks with 1,936 high school seniors who are in the running for 150 college scholarships worth $20,000 each. Students are selected to advance to this next phase based on academic excellence, leadership and service demonstrated in school and community activities. The class of 2018 Coca Cola Scholars will mark the 30th consecutive year that the Foundation has awarded scholarships.
The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation was created in 1986 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Coca Cola and to establish a legacy for the education of tomorrow’s leaders through college scholarships.
