[April 20, 2010]  A Lincoln College student is one of 150 college students nationwide to receive a prestigious Coca-Cola scholarship, which is based on academic achievement. Mubeen Khan of Wheeling was recently named a 2010 Coca-Cola National Finalist. She is the first Lincoln College student to receive the honor.

HardwareKhan has maintained a 4.0 grade-point average while attending Lincoln College.

Mubeen is the daughter of Basheer and Najeeb Khan. She is a 2008 graduate of Wheeling High School. A pre-med major, she plans to continue her studies at the University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine.

As a finalist in the Coca-Cola competition, Khan will receive a $1,000 scholarship and has earned a trip to Florida to attend the national conference for Phi Theta Kappa chapters. Her selection was based on scores she earned in the All-USA Academic Team competition.

To qualify, she submitted three essays and two letters of recommendation from her instructors. Professor Chris Gray, chair of the fine arts program and a Phi Theta Kappa adviser, said: "This recognition is definitely deserved. Mubeen is a wonderful role model to so many others."

This is just the latest recognition for this outstanding young woman, who was also named an Illinois Student Laureate and invited to attend a formal reception and lunch at the governorís mansion.

Despite a busy academic schedule, she also finds the time to give back to the community by volunteering her time at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
