CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The CIAA Essay Contest Presented by Coca-Cola Consolidated and Food Lion awarded a total of $30,000 in scholarships to 14 deserving CIAA students on Saturday evening during the CIAA Tournament men’s championship game.  The four grand prize winners included Bowie State University student Ruth Montgomery, Claflin University student Faith McKie, Johnson C.
