Coca Cola Scholarships Awarded to 16 Students

June 9th, 2014

Chatfield College, a private, Catholic, liberal arts college granting the Associate Degree in rural Brown County, Ohio and Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, has awarded Chatfield College First Generation Scholarships to 16 area high school students who are the first in their families to attend college.

The scholarships are made possible by a grant from the Coca Cola Foundation. Chatfield is the only college in the region to receive this grant and is one of only 400 colleges across the country offering Coca-Cola First Generation Scholarships. Fewer than 10% of U.S. colleges have received this grant and are able to award these prestigious scholarships.

Students who received scholarships include Latasha Banks - Cincinnati Job Corp.; Rachel Burnett- Goshen High School; Chris Clifton – Western Brown High School; Alexis Elliott, Amberly Gorman, and Samantha Milburn – Whiteoak High School; Nikole Frump – Hillsboro High School; Myra Garcia – Roger Bacon High School; Dequala Howard – Aiken High School; Destiny Huff and Megan Reed – Blanchester High School; Kodidia Keita and She’a McKinney – Woodward High School; Sierra Mitchem – Gilbert A. Dater High School, Raethanak Ward – Spanish Fork High School and Ashley Wright – Virtual High School.

The scholarships are full-tuition for use in the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 terms at Chatfield College.

"Chatfield is committed to serving a community of both traditional and non-traditional learners, many of whom are the first in their family to attend college,” said John P. Tafaro, Chatfield College President. “We are delighted to offer Coca Cola First Generation Scholarships to these worthy students, and we are looking forward to seeing them begin their college education with us in the fall.”

Since 1993, The Coca-Cola First Generation Scholarship program has awarded over $36 million in scholarships, reaching more than 2,800 students on campuses throughout the U.S.
