Asnuntuck student Victoria Orifice, has been selected as a 2018 Coca-Cola Academic Team Silver Scholar and will receive a $1,250 scholarship!
 
Selection as a Coca-Cola Silver Scholar was based on scores the student earned in the All-USA Academic Team competition, for which more than 2,000 applications were received this year. This program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and is administered by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
  
Phi Theta Kappa will recognize the 2018 Coca-Cola Academic Team Scholars on stage at PTK Catalyst, Phi Theta Kappa’s Annual Convention, April 19-21 in Kansas City, Missouri.
 
Victoria was one of the 50 silver scholars selected in the nation.  In addition, she will be serving as the New England’s President for Phi Theta Kappa next year, along with Asnuntuck student Dee Chamberlain as New England’s Southern Vice President.
