AAB Retreat

Introduction

Each year, Coca-Cola Scholarship recipients are welcomed into a vibrant and growing extended family that fosters lasting connections with our members. No other scholarship program maintains such lifetime connections or nurtures such a unique culture. Coca-Cola Scholar alumni stay in touch through regional councils, special events, and though their local Coca-Cola bottling facilities. Alumni often unite to organize and implement community service projects that enable them to make an even greater impact together.

Giving Back

Through the Coca-Cola Scholar Alumni Advisory Board (AAB), alumni build on the efforts of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation through networking, mentoring, collaborations and friendships. The AAB assists in maintaining Scholar bonds and keeping the Scholar spirit alive and strong.

The AAB has also created a Coca-Cola Alumni Scholarship that is given to a deserving high school senior, in addition to those awarded by the Foundation.
