From the Chancellor's desk today --
Dear Campus Community,
It is with great pleasure that I inform you that a member of the Horned Frog Family is a 2016 Rhodes Scholar finalist. The Rhodes Scholarship is one of oldest and most prestigious scholarships in the world, with 32 students from the United States being selected each year. Caylin Moore is one of a handful of Rhodes finalists in Texas Christian University's history. This is a remarkable accomplishment that brings honor to the entire TCU community.
Caylin, an economics major in the AddRan College of Liberal Arts, is an outstanding young man who has overcome adversity to achieve success both athletically and academically. He is a former Truman Scholarship finalist, co-founder of an outreach organization to inspire local youth, a 2016 Big 12 Conference Sports Person of the Year finalist, and also is a finalist for the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship Program, and he maintains a 3.934 GPA.
His moral character, commitment to others and leadership skills exemplify the qualities of a Rhodes Scholar and the spirit of TCU.
Please join me in rallying behind Caylin and supporting him as he continues to compete for this tremendous honor and opportunity.
Congratulations, Caylin – we are so proud of what you have already accomplished, and send you our thoughts and best wishes for continued success!
