Marivell Mendoza, a nursing student at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, has been named a 2013 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver and 50 Bronze Scholars, and providing nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. Each Bronze Scholar receives a $1,000 scholarship and a special medallion. Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society administers the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Program and recognizes Coca-Cola Community College scholars during All-State Community College Academic Team Recognition ceremonies held in 38 states. Mendoza was first recognized as a Kansas Scholar in February. Selection as a Coca-Cola Bronze Scholar was based on scores earned in the All-USA Community College Academic Team competition, for which more than 1,800 applications were received this year. SCCC/ATS has not had a national honor since Donna Shank, was recognize as member of the first team in 1995 and Brandon Sutton, the second team in 1996.
