Madison Gohlke, of Anniston, was recently awarded the 2016-17 SEC Dr Pepper Education Abroad award at Auburn University to fund her year-long, study abroad program. She is a junior studying animal sciences in Auburn’s College of Agriculture. She completed her program in the summer of 2016 in Swaziland where she studied field biology, ecology and parasitology.

SEC’s corporate sponsor, Dr Pepper, donated $100,000 in 2015 to provide study abroad opportunities for SEC students who excel in the classroom, demonstrate financial need and represent non-traditional study abroad  participants.
