Grayson College sophomore April Tocci is one of only 50 students nationally who was named a 2014 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar. She will receive a $1,000 scholarship and a commemorative bronze medallion.


The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team program by recognizing 50 gold, 50 silver and 50 bronze scholars annually. Scholars were chosen from more than 1,700 nominees across the country who were selected to represent their community colleges.


Tocci was selected by an independent panel of judges that considered outstanding academic rigor, grade point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service. In addition to exemplary academic record, Tocci is president of Omicron Psi, Grayson College’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter.


PTK is an honor society that administers the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Program and recognizes Coca-Cola Academic Team scholars during All-State Community College Academic Team Recognition ceremonies held in 38 states.


Led by Tocci as president, Grayson College’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter recently received the organization’s Five Star Award for the fifth straight year. The award recognizes top performing chapters based on completion of specific projects designed to meet hallmarks of scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship. She also was named to the society’s Hall of Honor and to the District II Hall of Honor for her service and contributions to PTK.
