by Kelly Hicks, Stewardship Coordinator
Luisa Solarte ’98 was a senior Coca-Cola Manager in Colombia and a graduate of Thunderbird. She was an exceptional person valued both for her business professionalism and her commitment to her home country of Colombia. Tragically, she was killed in a terrorist attack that took place on February 7, 2003 in Bogotá. She believed passionately in what entrepreneurism and customer service could achieve in an embattled economy and society like Colombia. She brought to her work all the skills and knowledge she had learned at Thunderbird.
This scholarship endowment is dedicated to Luisa’s memory by The Coca-Cola Foundation and to the furtherance of the hope and skills so much a part of her life. We welcome you to add to this endowed scholarship or one of the many scholarships available to Thunderbird students, listed here.
