Two Coca-Cola Scholarship Semifinalists Named in Sayville High School

  • Congratulations to two students from the Class of 2020— Tara Donohue and Alexa Vargas—for being chosen as Semifinalists in the 2019-2020 Coca-Cola Scholars Program. Both girls are among 1,928 semi-finalists out of 93,000 applicants and could win a $20,000 scholarship.

    While their outstanding leadership, academic achievements, and dedication to their community have advanced them through the process thus far, Alexa and Tara are required to complete a second application. This involves providing greater details about their school, community, volunteer, and employment activities along with recommendations and transcripts. Once they complete this requirement, their Semifinalist applications will be reviewed by the Coca-Cola Program Reading Committee in January. After this review, 250 students will advance as Regional Finalists, with 150 becoming Coca-Cola Scholars.

    What an honor! Good luck, Tara and Alexa!
