She has won a $20,000 college scholarship and will be honored in April at the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation’s 29th annual Scholars Banquet in Atlanta. Isabelle is one of only five Scholars from Georgia this year.

“A Coca-Cola Scholar not only exemplifies superior leadership, service, and academics — they are change agents, positively affecting others in their community,” said J. Mark Davis, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “These extraordinary humans are already society’s coffers with bolder action, more amazing technology, bigger advancements, healthier futures, and exponential possibility.”

Winners are selected based on their outstanding leadership, academic achievements, and dedication to their community.

Isabelle, who recently was named the STAR Student for Cherokee County based on her exemplary academic performance, also is her school’s Student Delegate to the Cherokee County School Board.

A student leader, she has served as National Honor Society President and Student Government Treasurer and was selected for the Model Atlanta Regional Commission and Teen Leadership Cherokee, for which she earned the Most Outstanding Leader Award. She is an AP Scholar with Distinction and has won the PSAT Academic Achievement Award and an Academic Letter.

Isabelle is active in her community and volunteers for HFDA Gives Back (a service club she founded) and MUST Ministries as a Summer Lunch Coordinator and won a grant for her “Doggie Dash” Service Project. An accomplished dancer, Isabelle has won awards from the Georgia State PTA Reflections Contest and One National Dance Competition.

In addition to Isabelle’s honor, Woodstock High School senior A.J. Cox was named one of only 250 Regional Finalists nationwide.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, a joint effort of Coca-Cola Bottlers across America and The Coca Cola Company, is one of the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship programs of its kind in the United States.
