HORN LAKE, MS (localmemphis.com) - A Horn Lake teenager snagged the holy grail of every college applicant's scholarship search: a full ride.

JROTC member Tavis Taylor received a $460,000 scholarship Thursday, May 30, from the Coast Guard Academy. A special ceremony was held at Horn Like High School in his honor.

Taylor will attend the Marion Military Institute in Marion, Alabama for one year, then it's off to the Coast Guard Academy.

"I love the military experience so I get the best both of worlds, basically, school and military," said Taylor. "It's a really close knit community, everyone knows each other, it's so small so elite. Everyone there is really smart."

Taylor plans to study engineering or government.
