Central Arizona College Signal Peak Campus student, Skyler Wyly, has been named a 2020 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Silver Scholar.

The announcement of this prestigious award comes just a few weeks after Wyly was awarded First Team honors at the All-Arizona Academic Team Recognition Ceremony where he received a $1,000 scholarship
