HCC student earns scholarship from Coca-Cola Foundation

Hagerstown Community College student Brittany Eberly, of Hagerstown, recently received a $1,000 scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.
     
Every year the Foundation awards 400 scholarships to students that demonstrate academic success and take an active part in their community. Eberly, an elementary education major at HCC, is one of 350 students to receive the scholarship nationwide. The program is specially tailored towards students attending higher-education institutions that grant two-year degrees.
     
“The Coca-Cola Two-Year Scholarship Program is an extension of our long-standing commitment to college education throughout the United States,” said J. Mark Davis, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “This scholarship honors students who often balance responsibilities of school, work, and family, but also find time to give back to their communities through volunteer service.”
     
Eberly, a sophomore at HCC, plans to transfer to a four-year university to complete her teaching degree and eventually hopes to open her own daycare.
