Award honors those who exemplify superior leadership, service and academics.
Senior Aneesh Muppidi has been recognized as one of the country’s most outstanding high school leaders by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and has been awarded a $20,000 college scholarship.
As a member of the 33rd class of Coca-Cola Scholars, Aneesh exemplifies superior leadership, service and academics, and is a change agent who is positively affecting others in our community.
Aneesh is one of 150 selected from 99,403 applicants from across the country to receive this scholarship.
In addition to receiving college scholarships, students selected as Coca-Cola Scholars have the opportunity to network, collaborate and form friendships with other scholars to make an even greater impact together. Recent alumni initiatives include a podcast called The SIP, Coke Scholars Care (Coke Scholars doing good in the midst of the pandemic), and a coaching program that partners seasoned alumni with first-year scholars as they transition to college. Too, every five years, all alumni are invited to the Coca-Cola Scholars Leadership Summit.
Congratulations Aneesh on this impressive accomplishment!
A joint effort of Coca-Cola bottlers across the country and The Coca Cola Company, the Coca-Cola Scholars Program is the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship program in the United States. With the addition of the 2021 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,450 Coke Scholars nationwide with over $75 million in scholarships over the course of 33 years.
