It’s a celebration that Hilldrup’s Atlanta professionals look forward to every year – the Coca-Cola Scholars Banquet! We were thrilled to be back in person for this celebration after the event had moved to a virtual format since the 2020 pandemic. Not only were we able to learn about and celebrate the scholarship recipients, but we were honored to have two of the incredible honorees at our table!
Since 2018, Hilldrup has participated in this event as a Silver Donor. In attendance to represent Hilldrup included professionals who routinely work together to serve the workplace and storage needs of clients throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Our team included Nigel Kelly, Director, Workplace Services; Ed Haeussler, VP and GM – Hilldrup Atlanta; Brandi Hatch, Office Manager; Joe Schulz, Sr. Warehouse Manager – Workplace Solutions; Chancellor Triplett, Inventory Control – Workplace Solutions; Kristi Tilley, CBRE MAC Management, Global Workplace Solutions; and Aaron Kelly.
Stemming from all over the U.S., each Coca-Cola scholarship winner received a $20,000 college scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation to further the academic careers of exceptional high school students. These honorees are dedicated to leadership, service and positive action across countless sectors, from business and science to tech and non-profit outreach.
“This is truly a wonderful event honoring 150 brilliant young people who are already leaders in their communities,” shared Brandi Hatch. “It’s an event that always gives me such hope for our future.”
We were especially honored to get to know Coca-Cola scholarship recipients Carolyn Dorantes and Zoya Haq who joined us for the seated dinner portion of the banquet. It was our pleasure to celebrate you both alongside your fellow scholarship winners. We know you both will continue to do amazing things in your academic careers and beyond!
Thank you to everyone at Coca-Cola and the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for hosting such an inspiring and beautiful event for all attendees!
Hilldrup Atlanta’s Nigel Kelly, Director, Business Development – Workplace Solutions; Brandi Hatch, Office Manager; and Ed Haeussler, VP and GM of Hilldrup Atlanta have proudly attended the Coca-Cola Scholars Banquet for several years. We’re inspired by the work that these scholars have already brought to their communities and that Coca-Cola has chosen to financially support so many up-and-coming student leaders across the U.S.
