College of Menominee Nation student, Martina Thomas, has been chosen as a recipient of the Coca Cola First Generation Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded by American Indian College Fund (AICF) and Coca Cola Foundation to students that are the first in their family to attend college.
Martina Thomas is a Business Administration major with an expected graduation date of Spring 2023. She enjoys attending ceremonial events and her and her family are members of the Native American Church. Thomas has three children, which she states are her motivation for attending college.
Martina is grateful for this scholarship expressing gratitude to CMN and AICF, “I am very proud to be a first generation college student, a product of the American Indian Movement, and attend a Tribal College.” The Coca Cola First Generation Scholarship is renewable throughout students’ college careers if they maintain a 3.0 grade point average and are active in their campus and community life.
Thomas and Christina Petraskis (whom we highlighted earlier this year as CMN’s Student of the Year) were honored amongst 81 other Tribal College and University students at a virtual ceremony held by AICF on April 4, 2022.
The College of Menominee Nation is an accredited tribal, Land Grant institution that offers Bachelor’s and associate degrees, and technical diplomas. It serves students from campuses in Keshena and Green Bay, Wisconsin, with enrollment open to all.
