On April 10, Citrus College announced psychology major Jessie San was one of 50 community college students nationwide named to the 2023 Coca-Cola academic team of gold scholars.

San was among 2,400 students nominated to this year’s All-USA academic team, but only one of 50 gold scholars selected as a member of the soft drink’s academic team. Her selection was based on her all-USA academic team competition scores.

The scholarship by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation recognizes junior college students who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership and service skills. Every year, 50 gold, silver and bronze scholars are presented with more than $200,000 total in scholarships. As a gold scholar, San will receive about $1,500.

Arcadia resident San is currently the president of the Citrus College’s Beta Nu Eta chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, an active member of the college’s Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society, and a commissioner on the executive board of the Associated Students of Citrus College.

San will graduate in June with associate degrees in psychology, sociology, and social sciences with an emphasis on gender studies. She plans to transfer to a four-year university to pursue a bachelor’s in psychology. After, she hopes to attend graduate school, conduct research and become an industrial-organizational psychologist.
