Corina Maynes’ journey at CNM was prompted by the goal to advance in her current job as an accountant at the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce.

“I was ready to take my career to the next level,” Corina says. “I do all the accounts payable, accounts receivable, reconciliation and balancing books, and I wanted to validate my skills with the right credentials.”

 Corina is about to enter her final semester in CNM’s Business Administration program with a concentration in accounting. She plans to attend a four-year university to complete her bachelor’s degree in Business.

 Additionally, Corina is a proud member of CNM’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the international honor society for two-year colleges.

“I’m the VP of Public Relations which means it’s my job to promote PTK around the college,” she says. “PTK is an amazing organization to be a part of. I love that we are able to connect with the community and support the student body.”

As part of her involvement with PTK, Corina learned about many scholarship opportunities including the Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholarship Program, which she was recently awarded. As a single mother of three, Corina says that she could use the scholarship money to help pay for tuition and supplies.

 “It’s a pretty simple process to apply for scholarships. I really encourage my fellow students to take advantage of the many scholarship opportunities out there,” Corina says. “I was so excited to hear that I was named a Coca-Cola Leader of Promise Scholar.”

 The Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholarship Program helps new Phi Theta Kappa members defray educational expenses while enrolled in associate degree programs. Scholars are encouraged to assume leadership roles by participating in society programs and are selected based on scholastic achievement, community service, and leadership potential.

“The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has a long history of providing financial assistance to outstanding students at community colleges,” says Jane Hale Hopkins, President of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa, make it possible for more deserving students to achieve their educational goals, and support tomorrow’s leaders of the global community.”
