  • Friday, March 10, 2023 – Sophia Li, a senior at Mountain Brook High School, has been recognized as one of the country’s most outstanding high school leaders by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and has been awarded a $20,000 college scholarship. As a member of the 35th class of Coca-Cola Scholars, Sophia not only exemplifies superior leadership, service, and academics – she positively affects others in the community.

    Li follows 2022 MBHS graduate Jane Grey Battle, as a member of the prestigious program.

    “This is a distinguished honor for Sophia and we are extremely pleased to have students awarded in back-to-back years,” MBHS Principal Philip Holley said. “Throughout her time at Mountain Brook, Sophia has excelled in all her activities inside and outside the classroom. This is an extremely well-deserved honor.”

    Coca-Cola Scholars will attend Coca-Cola Scholars Weekend in Atlanta April 13-16, 2023, where they will be the guests of honor at the 35th annual Coca-Cola Scholars Banquet and participate in the Coca-Cola Scholars Leadership Development Institute facilitated by program alumni. Collectively, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will award $3.1 million in college scholarships to these outstanding young leaders.
