Wayne Community College student Hannah Skelton of Goldsboro has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.
She is one of 400 students to receive a scholarship from the Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program. Recipients must have demonstrated academic success and participated in community service during the past 12 months.
Miss Skelton, a 2008 graduate of Wayne Early/Middle College High School, is working toward an associate of arts degree and serves as a WCC ambassador.
This is the seventh year that a WCC student has received this scholarship since the program began nine years ago.
"The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program is an extension of our long-standing commitment to college education throughout the United States," said J. Mark Davis, president of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. "This scholarship honors students who often balance responsibilities of school, work and family, but also time to give back to their communities through volunteer service."
