Lone Star College–Tomball Student Receives Coca-Cola Foundation Scholarship
Renee Prince, a student at Lone Star College–Tomball, was named this summer as one of 350 community college students from across the nation to receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation's Coca-Cola Two Year Colleges Scholarship Program.
This scholarship program, now in its eighth year, provides merit-based scholarships to recognize community college students who demonstrate both a commitment to excellence in academics and a commitment to service to their communities.
Prince, now a resident of New Kentucky in Hockley, completed high school in her native Taiwan. She is an active community volunteer working with both children and animals.
Prince volunteers at the local public library, working with the math tutoring program and lends her time and energy also to several local animal shelter and rescue groups.
Majoring in business and math, Prince says the scholarship will be a great help to her in completing her education at Lone Star College–Tomball.
"It's going to help me a lot," said Prince. "I really appreciate it a lot because I put my heart into my studies. It's encouraged me to do more in terms of giving back to the community."
Prince learned of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation program from her adviser at Lone Star College–Tomball.
