Jazz Duncan, a senior at the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology, has been named a semifinalist for the 2017 Coca-Cola Scholars Program. The program recognizes a diverse group of extraordinary high school seniors from around the nation who have demonstrated academic and civic excellence in their schools and communities.
Duncan is among approximately 1,900 high school seniors who are in the running for 150 college scholarships worth $20,000 each. Semi-finalists are selected to advance as regional finalists based on academic excellence, leadership and service demonstrated in school and community activities.
“The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation received nearly 86,000 applications this year, and the semifinalists are truly some of the most accomplished students in the country,” said Mark Davis, president of the foundation.
