Immaculate High School has announced the names of IHS students named 2022 Coca-Cola Scholar Semifinalists! Congratulations to Ridgefield resident Caleb Schmidt and Caitlin Doherty of Danbury!
Schmidt and Doherty are among 1,617 students nationwide selected from over 68,000 applicants from across the country to continue through our selection process based on their academic excellence, leadership, and service demonstrated in school and community activities.
They are currently submitting their Semifinalist applications to be reviewed by our Program Reading Committee. After this review, 250 will advance as Regional Finalists, with 150 becoming Coca-Cola Scholars and receiving a $20,000 college scholarship.
A joint effort of Coca-Cola bottlers across the country and The Coca-Cola Company, the Coca-Cola Scholars Program is the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship program in the United States. With the addition of the 2022 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,600 Coke Scholars nationwide with over $78 million in scholarships over the course of 34 years.
