ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - Zachary High School’s athletic program just got a big boost with a donation of $10,000 going toward the basketball team.

On Friday, Mar. 22, Coca-Cola presented a check to the school as part of the Power Your School promotion. Zachary High’s basketball coach says some of the players joined together to create a video for the contest.

“I’m a proud principal in many ways. Academically, we achieve here and athletically, we do too. We want to thank obviously, Coca-Cola, for this generous contribution. Obviously, the guys worked hard for it and we congratulate them,” said Principal Tim Jordan.

We’re told the students didn’t know about the donation before Friday’s big reveal, making it an extra special surprise.
