Tri-C’s Charese Harrison Named a National Coca-Cola Scholar
Maple Heights resident is among 150 students honored across the country
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) student Charese Harrison has been named a 2021 Coca-Cola Academic Team Silver Scholar, joining a select group of students from across the nation.
Harrison has been studying recording arts at Tri-C and is set to graduate in May with an Associate of Arts degree. She is part of the College’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Scholars Academy.
Her grades earned her membership in Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, and she has also been active with Black American Council. In 2020, she was selected by Tri-C to serve as a Campus Vote Project Democracy Fellow.
The Maple Heights resident intends to transfer to Middle Tennessee State University this fall to study audio production.
As a Coca-Cola Silver Scholar, Harrison will receive a $1,250 scholarship in addition to a commemorative medallion. She and other team members will be recognized at upcoming ceremonies.
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.
Students are nominated for the academic team by their college administrators. Selection is based on academic achievement, leadership and engagement in college and community service.
Harrison was one of three Tri-C students named to the 2021 Coca-Cola Academic Team. She was joined by Kylie Cianciolo of Fairview Park and Isabel Ruiz-Flint of Solon.
