Seventh Annual Tuition Giveaway contest
“Share an Ice Cold Coke, share your story” Tuition Giveaway
For a chance to receive one year’s tuition, entrants were asked to share their “dream to succeed” story and about overcoming challenges or adversities. Written or video submissions were accepted and reviewed by a panel of judges.
At Ramey’s in Poplarville, sophomore student Mickie Hill of Hattiesburg was announced as the recipient of the 2017 Tuition Giveaway contest at Pearl River Community College.
Russ Hendley, on premise sales manager for Hattiesburg Coca-Cola, said he was thrilled with Hill’s selection.
“The tradition continues. Hattiesburg Coca-Cola congratulates Mickie Hill, this year’s PRCC tuition give-a-way winner,” said Hendley. “Good luck as you continue your educational pursuits at PRCC. Thanks to all those who shared their stories with us and remember to always Share A Coke with a Wildcat and Family and Friends.”
