We loved visiting Coke Scholars in Durham, Chicago, and New York!
Alumni Advisory Board Retreat
All 14 members of the Alumni Advisory Board came together for the first time in 3 years for a retreat in Atlanta. In less than two days, they planned programming and development opportunities for the coming year and filmed a fun announcement about the 2023 Coca-Cola Scholars Leadership Summit (stay tuned!).
Slices for Scholars
Coke Scholars on campus connect over pizza and Coke.
Pegah Taylor (2003) – Managing Director of Leadership Development, KIPP Texas Public Schools
Star Wallin (2002) – CEO and Founder, Bell Creek Consulting
Brandon Cardet-Hernandez (2003) – Executive Director, Ivy Street School Even in the face of immense hurdles, they are optimistic about the future and innovation in the field.
The trio discuss learning beyond remediation and through opportunity, partnering with community organizations to enhance student support, making equity more than just a buzz word at both a systems level and for individuals, and so much more.
The panel shares their favorite personal brands, how to build your brand in a way that is polished yet authentic, and what makes for great digital content (and how to get over the fear of creating it, too). They also discuss their unique journeys in brand building and some favorite tools to get it all done.
