Seminole State sophomore Christopher Posey has won a Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise scholarship through the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
The honors student, who has a 4.0 GPA, was selected based on his stellar academic record and his answers to essay questions about leadership. More than 1,000 students competed.
Posey, 41, of Orlando, is using the $1,000 award for tuition, books and other educational expenses. He plans to pursue bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts and hopes to attend Columbia University. His goal is to become a published novelist.
In his essay answers, Posey, vice president of scholarship for Seminole State’s PTK chapter, wrote that at the age of 40, he realized that college would give him not only an education but also an experience that would help him become his best. College has opened doors to limitless possibilities, he says.
The Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise scholarship program is designed to help students pay for their education at two-year colleges and to develop their leadership potential through participation in PTK.
Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year colleges. Members of PTK must demonstrate honor and service to others and maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher.
