Saylor Snowden

Saylor Snowden of Lantana, a senior at Guyer High School, was recognized as one of the country’s most outstanding high school leaders by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and awarded a $20,000 college scholarship.

Snowden was selected from a pool of nearly 140,000 applicants from across the country and based on her extracurricular activities, honors and awards, transcripts, multiple essays, recommendations and a committee interview before a board comprised of Coca-Cola Executives and former Scholars.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation is one of the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship programs of its kind in the United States.

“Saylor Snowden is part of a diverse group of extraordinary high school seniors that have shown a steadfast commitment to educational excellence, leadership, and service to her school and community,” said Julie Hamilton, Chairman of the Board of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.

On April 19, Snowden will join other Coca-Cola Scholars as they travel to Atlanta, the international headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company, for a Scholars Weekend. During this four-day weekend, the Scholars will participate in a Leadership Development Institute to further develop their leadership skills with top business executives, tour local landmarks, engage with former Coca-Cola Scholars and participate in a group community service project.

In addition to receiving the $20,000 college scholarship, Snowden will be welcomed into a vibrant and growing family of over 6,000 alumni that fosters lasting connections with each other and the Foundation.
