NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Two local college students have received a huge honor.

Tidewater Community College students Griffin Leach, of Chesapeake, and Amy Nordmeyer, of Suffolk, are a part of this year’s Coca-Cola Community College Scholars.

They’ll both receive a scholarship of more than $1,000 and head to a convention in Nashville next week to be recognized. The honor society Phi Theta Kappa administers the program.

TCC says Leach is heading to the University of Virginia after he graduates, while Nordmeyer is planning to attend Old Dominion University in the fall.

A senior at Hampton High School was selected as a Coca-Cola Scholar. Alla Issa is among 150 students who will each receive a $20,000 college scholarship. Nearly 86,000 students applied! Alla will attend the 2017 Scholars Weekend April 20-23. Congratulations!
