EGCC student named Kimberly Boyer

Silver Fellow of the Coca-Cola Academic Team

STEUBENVILLE – Eastern Gateway Community College student Kimberly Boyer has been named a 2023 Coca-Cola Academic Team Silver Scholar on a $1,250 scholarship.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Academic Team program by awarding nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually to 50 Gold, 50 Silver and 50 Bronze Scholars. Each scholar receives a commemorative medal.

“We couldn’t be prouder of Kimberly Boyer for receiving this grant and recognition for her hard work and academic achievement,” said EGCC President Michael Geoghegan. “Our students continue to amaze us with their incredible determination and never-ending pursuit of excellence. Students like Kimberly raise the bar, and we’re grateful to organizations like the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for recognizing and rewarding these qualities. It’s a great day to be a Gator!”

“The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial support to outstanding community college students,” said Jane Hale Hopkins, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa to enable more deserving students to achieve their educational goals and support the global community leaders of tomorrow.”

Students are nominated for the academic team by their college administrators. Selection is based on academic achievement, leadership, and commitment to collegiate and community service.

Members of the Coca-Cola academic team will be recognized at local and statewide ceremonies and will receive international recognition during the annual Phi Theta Kappa, PTK Catalyst Convention, held April 20-22 in Columbus.

“We thank the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for recognizing these student leaders and for investing in their future,” said Lynn Tincher-Ladner, President and CEO of Phi Theta Kappa. “Scholarships like these are a significant factor in the success of these students in achieving their educational and career goals.”
