Heather Berberich and Jessica Lin, students at Calhoun High School, are among 45 Long Island high school seniors named semifinalists in the 2019 Coca-Cola Scholars Program.

Additionally, they are among the top 2 percent of students chosen nationwide.

“They are looking for well-rounded individuals and I think our involvement in athletics, clubs and extra curriculars fits into that criteria,” said Berberich.

Lin mentioned her involvement in community based organizations as incentive to apply for the scholarship. 

This is an achievement-based scholarship in which more than 95,000 students applied to be among 150 recipients of $20,000 scholarships. Berberich and Lin are awaiting notification for the next round.
