Coca-Cola Scholar Semifinalists at Elmont Memorial

Elmont Memorial High School students Munahil Sultana and salutatorian Marvia Pressoir have been named semifinalists by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. Munahil and Marvia are among 1,928 students who were selected from across the country.

Munahil and Marvia were selected based on their leadership qualities, academics (minimum unweighted GPA of 3.0) and community service.

In late January, 250 students will be selected to move forward as regional finalists. These students will then schedule regional interviews, either in person or via Skype, with the Regional Interview Committee in mid-February. Each student who becomes a Regional Finalist will receive, at minimum, a $500 educational stipend. After regional interviews, 150 students will be named Coca-Cola Scholars in early March and receive a $20,000 college scholarship.

The school congratulates Munahil and Marvia and wishes them luck on potentially moving forward as regional finalists!
