Pingry senior Mirika Jambudi has been named a Coca-Cola Scholar by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.

Coca-Cola Scholars not only exemplify superior leadership, service, and academics, but are also change agents, positively affecting others in their community. Mirika is among 150 scholars who advanced from more than 91,000 applicants across the country.

Among her many accomplishments, Mirika is the first student in Pingry history to serve as Editor of four publications in the same school year, including The Pingry Record and PCR (Pingry Community Research) journal, and she leads one of Pingry’s Independent Research Teams and one of the Humanities Independent Research Teams; she won Pingry’s Dr. Robert H. LeBow ’58 Memorial Oratorical Competition in 2022; she is a Girl Scout who is an active volunteer in her community and earned the Girl Scout Gold Award; and she has served as a selected member to her Congressman’s Youth Advisory Council, which works with her congressman and hosts community events.

As a scholar, Mirika will receive a college scholarship; a new family of over 6,750 Coca-Cola Scholar alumni to encourage, challenge, and support in a shared goal to make the world a better place; and a trip to Atlanta for Coca-Cola Scholars Weekend April 13–16 that will include the 35th annual Coca-Cola Scholars Banquet and the Leadership Development Institute.
