Southwest Student Awarded 2011 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholarship

Erin Mullinax, a Science in Engineering major at Southwest Tennessee Community College, is a 2011 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholar. The scholarship, awarded to 180 community college students in the amount of $1,000 each, is designed to help defray the financial costs of attending school while encouraging student participation in Phi Theta Kappa programs and cultivating leadership ability.

Mullinax is a member of Phi Theta Kappa Upsilon Delta and the 2011-2012 President of the Honors Academy. Following her graduation in May 2012, she will be pursuing a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. She is currently reviewing admissions offers to several schools with strong engineering programs.

"This scholarship means a lot to me. I am honored to have been chosen as one of the recipients and encourage other students to apply for the 2012 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholarship," said Mullinax.
