75 Coca-Cola Scholars, alumni, and spouses came together in Austin for the 2016 Coca-Cola Scholars Service Summit, a 3-day event that focused on how to be an everyday change agent in your community. After the first day of dynamic speakers, the group spent the second day refreshing Zavala Elementary, where Tim McCallum (1991) went to school, with United Way for Greater Austin.
50 Coke Scholars and friends joined The Coca-Cola Company at Citi Field in NYC for the Mets game on September 19! Though the Mets didn’t win the game, fun was had by all. CCSF would like to thank Donna Cirolia (Public Affairs and Communications, The Coca-Cola Company) and her team at the New York office for the tickets to the game! See more pictures.

SLICES FOR SCHOLARS
Scholars around the country have continued the tradition of hosting welcome back pizza socials as fall terms have begun. So far Scholars at Brigham Young, Case Western Reserve, Harvard, Princeton, and UNC-Chapel Hill have scheduled their gatherings, with many more to come. At a “buy a slice/give a slice” restaurant, UPenn Scholars donated 145 pieces of pizza for the local homeless.
