Dr Pepper Awards Big Scholarship to Barry Student

Barry University sophomore Garrett Booker took home a grand prize scholarship of $100,000 by winning the Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway at the SEC Championship football game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. To win the prize, Garrett had to compete against a student from Virginia Commonwealth University in a race to throw as many footballs into an oversized Dr Pepper can replica. Not only did Garrett win, he also set a Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway record by making 20 throws in 30 seconds. He said his style was a basketball chest-pass approach. Garrett was among thousands of Dr Pepper fans from across the country who submitted video entries online explaining why they deserved to win college tuition. Entries were judged on a range of criteria, such as the inclusion of Dr Pepper, a description of how the tuition money and a college education will help the student make an impact in the world, and overall presentation quality.
