The ingredients for Coca-Cola is on the back of the bottles and cans but it’s not the secret formula created in 1886 by Dr. John Pemberton. The secret formula is now in The Vault at the World of Coca-Cola.
The Jr. Ambassadors and I had the opportunity to tour the World of Coca-Cola here in our home city. This experience is one of the reasons that so many people from across the world visit Atlanta.
We finished the day with a wiffle ball game in Centennial Olympic Park which my team lost by one run.
To me, Coke is all about tradition, family and legacy. It’s more than a beverage. It’s what most people enjoy during holiday’s and family gatherings. It’s pretty cool that I’m writing this blog inside the Varsity enjoying 2 chilli slaw dogs with onion rings and a large Coke.
Atlanta has so much history and so many experiences. This was the first visit to the World of Coca-Cola for several of our Jr. Ambassadors. It’s in walking distance for several of them yet off limits due to financial reasons. Exposure to Atlanta’s best has always been important to me because it provides a sense of belonging as well as motivation to achieve greatness.

L.E.A.D. is one big family committed to our mission to provide inner city Atlanta at-risk males with access to higher education and civic engagement through baseball. And we drink a lot of Coke.
Tomorrow we are visiting the CNN Center. Look out for my next blog tomorrow.
