SPC student Erik Durneika has been selected as a 2015 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar. Durneika’s selection was based on his scores in the All-USA Community College Academic Team competition, for which more than 1,700 applications were received this year. This program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and is administered by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
To be selected for the scholarships, Durneika had to make it on the Phi Theta Kappa All-Florida Academic Team. Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year colleges. Members of PTK must demonstrate honor and service to others and maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher.
The New Century Scholars program honors the top scoring Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team nominee from each of the 50 states in the U.S. Since 1989, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has awarded $60 million in scholarships to more than 5,400 outstanding students.
Phi Theta Kappa will recognize the 2015 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Scholars at the Celebration of Scholars Networking Social on Saturday, April 18 held during the Phi Theta Kappa International Convention (NerdNation).
