CAC Student, Sevasti Silvia Named Coca-Cola Academic Team Gold Scholar

Central Arizona College San Tan Campus student, Sevasti Silvia, has been named a 2023 Coca-Cola Academic Team Gold Scholar.

Silvia’s selection as a Coca-Cola Silver Scholar is based on the score she earned in the All-USA Community College Academic Team competition. Students are evaluated on their academic achievement, leadership, and engagement in college and community service.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver and 50 Bronze Scholars, with nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. Each Gold Scholar receives a $1,500 scholarship and a special medallion.

The announcement of this prestigious award comes just a few weeks after Silvia was selected to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society All-Arizona Academic Team.

Coca-Cola Academic Team members will be recognized in both local and statewide ceremonies and will also be recognized internationally during Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention, PTK Catalyst, to be held in Columbus, Ohio, April 20-22.
