LANSING, Mich. – Yolanda Crim, a student at Lansing Community College, has been named a 2020 Coca-Cola Academic Team Silver Scholar and will receive a $1,250 scholarship.

“The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial assistance to outstanding students at community colleges,” said Jane Hale Hopkins, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa and make it possible for deserving students to achieve their educational goals.”
