Two Paducah Teens Named Semifinalists in Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation Program

Both Hancock and Propes are student teachers at Score Higher ACT Prep in Paducah.

“Caleigh is one of the most talented students I have ever been around,” said McCracken County High School Principal Michael Ceglinski. “You can find her accomplishments throughout McCracken County High School. She has one of the brightest minds I’ve ever seen and has an even bigger heart. Caleigh is a leader in every sense of the word and is so deserving of this scholarship opportunity. Her future has no limits and I am excited to see what impact she has on society some day.”

Paducah Public Schools Superintendent Donald Shively said of Hancock, “Meg is an outstanding example of Tilghman’s long standing tradition of exceptional scholars. Her true love of learning has allowed her to excel on a national level in all areas as a student. However, her focus on giving back to the community is what has left an impression on me. She has a passion for impacting Paducah in a positive way.”

The Coca-Cola Scholars Program was founded in 1989 to honor students who exhibit academic excellence, positive leadership, and dedication to service. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation invests over $3,500,000 each year in deserving students who aspire to make profound differences in the world.
