Students Named Semifinalists in Coca-Cola Scholars Program

Fox Chapel Area High School seniors Elianna Paljug and Rachel Szabo have been selected as semifinalists for the 2015 Class of the Coca-Cola Scholars Program. Elianna and Rachel are two of approximately 2,100 high school seniors from across the nation (and two of 82 from Pennsylvania) to be chosen as semifinalists. Students are selected based on academics, as well as being actively involved in their schools. Students chosen as semifinalists are service oriented and demonstrate a sustained commitment to bettering their community.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, a joint effort of Coca-Cola Bottlers across America and The Coca-Cola Company, is one of the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship programs of its kind in the United States. The program recognizes a diverse group of extraordinary high school seniors who have demonstrated academic and civic excellence in their schools and communities.

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.
