CCHS senior named 2022 Coca-Cola Scholar Semifinalist

Central Catholic senior, Ernesto Gomez has both been named Semifinalists for the class of 2022 Coca-Cola Scholars Program, according to a press release from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.

Only 1,609 high school seniors nationwide were selected as Semifinalists from a pool of nearly 100,000 students who submitted applications from across the country based on their academic excellence, leadership, and service demonstrated in school and community activities. 

Semifinalists are now asked to complete Phase 2 applications, including essays, a recommendation, and transcripts. An independent selection committee will review the applications and select 250 Regional Finalists by the end of January to participate in online interviews. One hundred fifty Coca-Cola Scholars will be named in March to receive a $20,000 college scholarship and participate in the Coca-Cola Scholars Leadership Development Institute facilitated by program alumni. 

Congratulations to Ernesto, who continues to exemplify excellence in education and character!
