COCA-COLA SCHOLARS FOUNDATION
AWARDS ANGELITO MAYAEN $1,000 SCHOLARSHIP

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – (July 13, 2004) – Angelito Mayaen, a student at Tidewater Community College and Virginia Beach resident, has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. Mahaen is earning a degree in Radiologic Technology at TCC’s Virginia Beach Campus.

Through the Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program, the Foundation awards a total of 400 scholarships annually to students attending higher-education institutions granting two-year degrees. All recipients have demonstrated academic success and performed 100 hours of community service within the past 12 months.

“The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program gives support and encouragement to an under-served population of college students,” said J. Mark Davis, president of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “This program is an extension of our long-standing commitment to college education throughout the United States. These fine students, who often juggle school, work and family, continue to give back to the communities through volunteer service.”

The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program is made possible with funding from the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation. The Whitehead Foundation provides grants in support of human services initiatives. The late Joseph B. Whitehead was one of the original bottlers of Coca-Cola.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation is supported by the financial commitment of the Mid-Atlantic CCBC/Norfolk and The Coca-Cola Company. The Coca-Cola Two-Year Colleges Scholarship Program has provided more than $2 million in scholarship awards to students attending two-year degree granting institutions and more than $25 million in the Coca-Cola Scholars Program during the past 16 years.
