Moore, a cellular/molecular biology major, shared the he is excited to explore multiple topics of research alongside App State faculty.

He plans to supplement his passions for biology, wildlife and sustainability with study abroad experiences supported by his Chancellor's Scholarship, which will allow him to learn from different cultures and engage with a larger diversity of organisms and people.

"I love everything about wildlife, especially in the mountains, so attending a university that is dedicated to protecting that was a major factor in choosing my college," Moore said.
