Schuylerville High School seniors Sidney Gregorek and Derek Willson have recently been named national semifinalists for the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. The pair are two of only 1,900 semifinalists from across the country to advance to the next round of the scholarship program.

Each year, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation awards a $20,000 scholarship to 150 high school seniors who not only excel academically, but who are also actively involved in their schools and demonstrate a sustained commitment to bettering their community.

Gregorek and Willson will now compete with other semifinalists based on grades, recommendations, activities, service and essay responses to become one of the regional finalists. The foundation will announce its regional finalists in late January.
