Emily David and Alec Sievern from Reitz Memorial High School in Evansville, have been selected as members of the 2013 Class of Coca-Cola Scholars.

Over the four-day weekend, the finalists will interview with a National Selection Committee, tour local landmarks, engage with former Coca-Cola Scholars and participate in a range of activities including a community service project.
The 2013 Class of Coca-Cola Scholars will also be the guest of honor at the annual Scholars Banquet which will celebrate their great accomplishments. Joining in the celebration will be representatives from the Coca-Cola System, educators, local dignitaries and friends of the Scholars Foundation. Renowned author and journalist Tom Brokaw will serve as the keynote speaker.
