BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Nathan Foo of West Shore Jr./Sr. High is now a part of the historic 33rd class of Coca-Cola Scholars.

Foo is one of just 150 high school seniors from the United States to receive a $20,000 college scholarship and join a family of 6,450+ alumni who are leading positive change in their communities and around the world.

He will put his scholarship money to good use as he heads to Stanford in August to study product design.

Less than 1/6th of 1 percent of applicants were chosen to receive this extremely competitive award. These 150 students, who were selected from an initial pool of 99,403 applications from across the country, not only exemplify superior leadership, service, and academics – they are change agents, positively affecting others in their communities.

In addition to receiving college scholarships, students selected as Coca-Cola Scholars will be welcomed into a vibrant and growing family of alumni that have become a powerful force for positive change in the world.

Through networking, collaborations, and friendships, the group strives to make a greater impact together. Recent initiatives include a podcast called The SIP, Coke Scholars Care (Coke Scholars doing good in the midst of the pandemic), and the fifth year of a coaching program that partners seasoned alumni with first-year Scholars as they transition to college.

Every 5 years, all alumni are invited to a Coca-Cola Scholars Leadership Summit.
