For Standout Indiana High School Graduate, The Sky Is The Limit
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with congratulations to Taran Richardson. He's 18, from my home state of Indiana. At Tindley high school, he's a track star, a basketball player, a dean's list student and senior class president. He applied to 70 colleges and 65 said yes, offering a million dollars in scholarships. Richardson chose Howard University to study astrophysics and says the sky's the limit, which means he's also good at dad jokes. It's MORNING EDITION.
