Coca-Cola Scholarships

Two Georgia Military College students have been awarded scholarships from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. Rebecca Dunnam, a student at GMC’s Milledgeville Campus, and Debra Smith, a student at GMC’s Valdosta Campus, each received $1,000 in recognition of their demonstrated academic success and participation in community service within the past 12 months.

Through the Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program, the Foundation awards a total of 400 scholarships annually to students attending higher-education institutions granting two-year degrees.

“The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program gives support and encouragement to an under-served population of college students,” said J. Mark Davis, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “This program is an extension of our long-standing commitment to college education throughout the United States. These fine students, who often juggle school, work and family, continue to give back to their communities through volunteer service.”

Now in its 7th year of funding the Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program, the Foundation has provided $2.8 million in scholarship awards to students attending two-year degree granting institutions, like Georgia Military College.
