Rye Neck High School senior Grace West has been named a semifinalist in the Coca Cola Scholars Program. She was selected based on her academic excellence, leadership and service demonstrated in school and community activities. 

West, who was chosen out of 93,075 applicants from across the country, is among a select group of 1,928 high school seniors who are in the running to receive a college scholarship worth $20,000.

To become a finalist, West must submit a detailed application, write an essay, provide her high school transcript and recommendations. An independent selection committee will review the applications and select 250 regional finalists by the end of January to proceed in the competition before 150 scholarship winners are announced in March. 

The Coca-Cola Scholars Program is a corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship program that has provided more than $72 million in scholarships over the last 32 years.
