Wantagh Teen Named a Coca-Cola Scholars Program Finalist

MacArthur senior Jaclyn Sullivan advances in prestigious academic competition.

Wantagh resident Jacklyn Sullivan is one of seven Long Island seniors out of 250 students nationwide who has been named a finalist by the Coca-Cola Scholars Program.

As a Coca-Cola finalist, Sullivan, a senior at MacArthur High School in Levittown, will advance in the competition for a four-year achievement-based scholarship to be issued this spring. 

Last month, Sullivan traveled to Atlanta to be interviewed by the selection committee, who will decide whether she will be one of 50 Finalists to receive a $20,000 scholarship or one of 200 finalists to receive a $10,000 scholarship. Earlier this year, Sullivan was selected as one of 2,200 Coca-Cola Scholars Program national semifinalists among 84,000 nationwide entries for her leadership, academic achievements, and potential.

Sullivan also received recognition this year for her research skills when she was in the Intel Science Talent Search competition this past January. Her winning project was "The Social Cost of School Restructuring: The Impact of Middle School Reform on Young Adolescent Girls’ Body Image.”
