Tampa, FL: Carrollwood Day School is proud to share that Class of 2023 student, Tejas Raxwal has been selected as a recipient of the Coca Cola Scholarship Foundation. He is one of 150 students who will receive $20,000 to go towards college expenses.
Tejas is part of the CDS Varsity Swim Team, a member of the HOSA club (Future Health Professionals), and a Duke of Edinburg member. He is also the founder of a non-profit organization (H20 365), and plans to be a cardiac surgeon.
Reaching the regional level distinguishes these students as extraordinary leaders in their school and community. Over 91,000 applicants and 1,557 Semifinalists participated in the program - to be selected as a Regional Finalist is an outstanding accomplishment.
Tejas participated in the next phase of the selection process, a 20-minute interview with our Regional Interview Committee comprised of a Foundation staff member and previous Coca-Cola Scholars Program scholarship recipients and was named a Coca-Cola Scholar and will receive 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 2023 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,750 Coke Scholars nationwide with over $81 million in scholarships over the course of 35 years.
Thank you to the CDS College Counseling Department and Associate Director, Danielle Cohen, for helping Tejas navigate the scholarship process.
