Amanda Hartly, a senior at Gonzaga Prep, has been selected from more than 1,000 applicants nationwide as a semifinalist for the 2004-2005 Coca-Cola Scholars Program.

Hartley is among 2,600 seniors in the running for $1.8 million in college scholarships that the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will award this spring. Students are selected to advance to this phase based on academic excellence, leadership and achievement demonstrated in school and community activities.

As a semifinalist, students must submit additional information that will be reviewed in February by a committee of 30 educators from high schools and universities throughout the United States.

If advanced, Hartly will be among 250 finalists who will travel to Atlanta April 14-17 to attend the Coca-Cola Scholars Weekend. During their visit they will attend a final interview process that will determine whether they are designated as either a National or Regional Scholar.

The 50 National Scholars will each receive a $20,000 scholarship award, while the 200 Regional Scholars will receive a $4,000 scholarship.
