Julie Katzer, a student at Central High School, District of Westosha,  has been named a Semifinalist for the 2017 class of the Coca-Cola Scholars Program.

With the 2016 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 5,700 Scholars nationwide with over $66 million in scholarships.

“As a premier scholarship provider, we recognize our role in helping young people achieve their college goals,” said Mark Davis, president of the Foundation. “The economy continues to affect many students’ ability to attend the college of their choice, so it is critical we continue to stay the course. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation received nearly 86,000 applications this year, and the Semifinalists are truly some of the most accomplished students in the country.”

Julie ranks with approximately 1,900 high school seniors who are in the running for 150 college scholarships worth $20,000 each. Students are selected to advance to this next phase based on academic excellence, leadership and service demonstrated in school and community activities. The class of 2017 CocaCola Scholars will mark the 29 th consecutive year that the Foundation has awarded scholarships.


The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, a joint effort of Coca-Cola Bottlers across America and The CocaCola Company, is one of the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship programs of its kind in the United States.
