Senior Simi Edeki Named Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation Semifinalist
Archmere senior Simi Edeki has been named a Coca-Cola Scholars Program Semifinalist, chosen from among more than 68,000 applicants due to her outstanding leadership, academics, and dedication to the Archmere community. The Coca-Cola Scholars Program scholarship is an achievement-based scholarship awarded to graduating high school seniors across the country. Simi is one of 1,617 Semifinalists in the United States moving on to the next round.
The next round of the selection process will narrow down the pool to 250 Regional Finalists, followed by an extensive interview process that will determine the 150 Coca-Cola Scholars. During this process, Semi will submit her application to be reviewed by the Program Reading Committee. After this review, 250 will advance as Regional Finalists, with 150 becoming Coca-Cola Scholars and receiving a $20,000 college scholarship.
A joint effort of Coca-Cola bottlers across the country and The Coca-Cola Company, the Coca-Cola Scholars Program is the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship program in the United States. With the addition of the 2022 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,600 Coke Scholars nationwide with over $78 million in scholarships over the course of 34 years.
