Chattanooga student receives $3,000 scholarship from Coca-Cola United

Lucy Cleveland, a senior at STEM School Chattanooga, is the recipient of a $3,000 Crawford Johnson III and Walker Johnson Jones Scholarship from the Coca-Cola Bottling Company United.

Cleveland is the daughter of Adam Cleveland, who is employed at Chattanooga Coca-Cola, a sales, distribution and production center of Coca-Cola United.

Coca-Cola United established the Crawford Johnson III and Walker Johnson Jones Scholarship in 1995 in honor of former CEO Crawford Johnson III’s retirement and his 45 years of service to the company.

The scholarship expanded in 2014, when Johnson’s daughter, former United community relations director and current board of directors member Walker Johnson Jones, retired after 34 of years of service.

This year, 20 children, stepchildren, grandchildren or step-grandchildren of Coca-Cola United associates throughout the Southeast were selected from 95 applicants to receive either a $5,000 or $3,000 scholarship, renewable over four years.

Coca-Cola United awards the scholarships on the basis of academic performance, leadership, extracurricular activities and service.
