Each year, our new class of Scholars is given the opportunity to celebrate teachers and mentors who have had a significant impact on their intellectual and personal development with our Educator of Distinction award. Below are photos from some of the Scholars and their EOD honorees.

For several Coca-Cola Scholars impacted by the storm, their network has provided a support system, with Scholars checking in on Scholars, providing donations and words of encouragement. Others have rolled up their sleeves and joined efforts to rebuild impacted cities.
