“I’m very grateful for this award,” Beebe said. “It will help me to save for things down the road.”

Beebe, a resident of Winter Haven, will receive a total of $1,000 in scholarship assistance. She is one of 200 students in the nation selected for the Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholarship. Recipients were selected based on their academic achievements and leadership potential.

Beebe is currently pursuing her Associate in Arts degree. Ultimately, she plans to obtain a bachelor’s degree in education and teach graphic and web design at the high school level.
