Jessica Moore Legacy Scholarship
Jessica Moore, Allen Park High School

Legacy Scholarship Recipient

As a legacy, Jessica looks to her father, an EMU alumnus for inspiration as he recently completed his degree in 2016 after an extended educational journey. Because of this, she is a firm believer that anyone can achieve their goals and the importance to set a goal and never lose sight of it. With college courses under her belt from Schoolcraft College and EMU, she was member of the National Honor Society, Peace Club, World Language Club and a hospital volunteer. Leading an active academic life during high school, Jessica was involved in track and field, diving and has won various awards including the Principals Scholar.
