DOVER — Sydney Fail, a nursing student at Delaware Technical Community College, has been named a 2021 Coca-Cola Academic Team Bronze Scholar and will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
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. Each scholar also receives a commemorative medallion.
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.
Ms. Fail plans to work as a pediatric or maternity nurse after she graduates in December 2021. She also plans to continue her education at Delaware Tech through the RN to BSN program, and eventually earn her master’s degree to become a nurse practitioner.
Coca-Cola Academic Team members will be recognized in both local and statewide ceremonies and will also be recognized internationally during Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention, PTK Catalyst, to be held virtually April 8-10.
