Valley Student Awarded Coca-Cola Scholarship

Local News

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation recently awarded Brandy Rodriguez from Edinburg CISD a $20,000 college scholarship and made the announcement during a special surprise event at Edinburg High School.

The foundation selected a few scholars for a video they were creating for the upcoming Scholars Banquet in April.

“Getting the Coca-Cola scholarship is amazing,” Rodriguez said. “Texas A&M University is my dream school. It always has been and its expensive. Now, I have the means to get there.”

In addition to receiving college scholarships, Coca-Cola Scholars will come to Atlanta April 4-7 for Scholars Weekend, where they will serve as the guests of honor at a celebratory banquet, participate in a leadership development curriculum, and be welcomed into a vibrant and growing family of alumni that have become a powerful force for positive change in the world. Through networking, collaborations, and friendships, the group strives to make a greater impact together.
