SUGAR GROVE – Waubonsee Community College student Anna Dutton of Oswego has been named a 2016 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar.
The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver and 50 Bronze scholars, and by providing nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. Each Bronze Scholar receives a $1,000 scholarship and a special medallion.
Dutton, a former intern for the Kane County Chronicle, is majoring in business and is involved in Phi Theta Kappa, Delta Sigma Omicron and Sigma Chi Eta at Waubonsee, states a news release from the college.
The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society administers the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Program and recognizes Coca-Cola community college scholars during All-State Community College Academic Team Recognition ceremonies held in 38 states. Student scholars also receive recognition locally during ceremonies held on campus and internationally for those who are able to attend Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention.
Community college presidents or their designated nominators can submit no more than two nominations per campus for this award.
An independent panel of judges considers outstanding academic rigor, grade-point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service in the selection process.
