Congratulations to our own Taryll Moore Jr., who is one of 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs! These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board’s Student Search Service.
Taryll has been awarded the National African American Recognition Award (NAARA), the National Hispanic Recognition Award (NHRA), and the National Rural and Small Town Award (NRSTA).
He has been attending St. Joseph School since almost kindergarten. His hobbies are playing video games. When asked his thoughts on this recognition, Taryll replied, "I’m really happy to have been received into the National Recognition Program, as I’m confident it’ll help me get into even better colleges." After graduation, he plans on heading to Florida where he will study to become a criminal defense attorney.
Taryll earned this recognition by excelling on their PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in their classrooms. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year, and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.
Congratulations Taryll! You make St. Joseph School proud.
