Hancock Named Regional Finalist in Coca Cola Scholars Foundation Program
Hancock is an acolyte and intercessor at Grace Episcopal Church, and interns on the Paducah Human Rights Commission. She has volunteered for six years at Paducah’s Reading Camp where literacy and writing skills are fostered among Paducah’s youth.
She will attend Duke University in the fall where she plans to pursue Duke’s philosophy, politics, and economics major at the university’s Sanford School of Public Policy. Her parents are Sid and Justin Hancock.
Paducah Public Schools Superintendent Donald Shively said of Hancock, ”Being named a regional finalist by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation Program is further recognition of Meg's outstanding scholastic accomplishments. If one analyzes all the activities in which Meg has excelled while a student at Tilghman, one can see the numerous advantages each and every one of our students has to reach his or her full potential as a student and a human being. It’s a testament to Meg, her hard work, and the support and encouragement she has been given throughout her 13 years in our school system to be honored for her achievements at the national level.”
The Coca-Cola Scholar Foundation Program was established in 1989 to reward deserving high school seniors who make positive strides in their communities and around the world. Coca-Cola has invested over 63 million dollars in students over the past 27 years. Coca-Cola Scholars become lifelong members of the Coca-Cola Foundation network.
