A young lady from Lubbock will get to carry the Olympic torch in Oxford, England for the 2012 Summer Games.

Coca-Cola chose 22 people to carry the torch on behalf of the company. The soft drink company chose teenagers who are making the world a better place.

18-year-old Sarah Jo Lambert of Lubbock is among them.

Coca-Cola cites Sarah Jo's efforts to raise more than $200,000 and recruit 2,200 volunteers as part of the Lorax Lodge Girl Scout project, an environmental education center. She recently received a Presidents Environmental Youth Award.

Coca-Cola's representatives will act as torch-bearers from July 9 -11.

The opening ceremony is July 27th.
