2016 Coca-Cola Scholars

2016 Scholars Weekend_Group Photo_2016.03.31

We are thrilled to announce our 28th class of Coca-Cola Scholars!

These 150 Coca-Cola Scholars attended the 2016 Scholars Weekend March 31 – April 3, 2016, where they met their peers for a time of inspiration, fun, and camaraderie. Scholars were honored at our 28th annual Scholars Banquet and participated in our Leadership Development Institute, an intensive leadership training during Scholars Weekend that challenged them to develop an inside-out leadership philosophy.

Want to learn more about Scholars Weekend? 2016 Scholar Sneha Dave wrote about her experience in her blog post, Rainbows After the Rain: My Journey to Becoming a Coke Scholar. 2006 Scholar alumnus Ashley Chang returned to Scholars Weekend as an LDI facilitator, serving as a mentor to the new Scholars. Read about what she learned during her experience in her blog post, What My Coca-Cola Scholar Mentees Taught Me.
