Congratulations to our very own Proviscope editor, Peter!
Providence Catholic is proud to announce senior Peter Conser of Lockport, Illinois, has been named a Semifinalist in the 2023-2024 Coca-Cola Scholars Program.
“This is a significant and memorable achievement for Peter,” says Mr. Paul Houston, Principal of Providence Catholic. “There were 1,515 Semifinalists chosen from more than 103,000 applicants. Peter being chosen as a semifinalist is a recognition of his academic achievements as well as his leadership within the Celtic community. We are extremely proud of Peter and what he has achieved in the classroom and beyond.”
Semifinalists are competing for 150 college scholarships worth $20,000. To celebrate Coca-Cola’s centennial in 1986, The Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola bottlers came together to fund the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. With the 35th class in 2023, the Foundation has provided over 6,750 Coca-Cola Scholars with more than $81 million in educational support. 150 Coca-Cola Scholars are selected each year to receive this $20,000 scholarship.
“I was surprised when I was notified, because there is less than a one percent acceptance rate,” says Peter. “I have always had a large curiosity to learn and gain more knowledge, especially pertaining to subjects like science. This scholarship would be a tremendous help to me in paying for college.” Peter is a graduate of Homer Junior High. He plans to study molecular biology on a pre-med track in college. At Providence Catholic, he is involved in many clubs and activities, including serving as President and Chief Editor of Proviscope (school newspaper), leading as a Student Ambassador, and a Student Council Representative.
