Kilgore College President Dr. Bill Holda is proud to announce that Heather Prince, KC sophomore, has been named as a Coca-Cola Gold Scholar. Prince was selected based on scores earned in the All-USA Community College Academic Team competition, of which more than 1,700 applications were received.
She is an education major from Hallsville and is also a Rangerette.
The program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and is administered by Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society.
Prince will receive a $1,500 scholarship and will also be honored April 24-26 in Orlando, Fla., at the annual PTK national convention.
Throughout the spring, 38 states host All-State Academic Team Recognition ceremonies where Coca-Cola Gold Scholars are recognized.
Funding for the scholarship is provided by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and the program is sponsored by Coca-Cola and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
PTK is sponsored at KC by Paul Buchanan, geology instructor, and Michele Daniels, speech instructor.
