I want to introduce you to a student at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. Cathleen Kane attends the Monmouth County college and received some good news this week from Coca-Cola, yes the soft drink giant.

 

 

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Academic Team program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver, and 50 Bronze Scholars with nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually.

President of Brookdale Community College, Dr. David M. Stout said “it is most impressive to be named to the Academic Team and even more impressive to be named as one of the top 50 Phi Theta Kappa students in the country. What an incredible achievement!”
