Taylor Extravour

2018 Scholarship Recipient

Taylor is the daughter of Geoffrey & Tammy Extavour, who graduated from Appoquinimink High School and is enrolled at North-eastern University in Boston, majoring in Marine Biology and Political Science. She has benefited from two cultural back-grounds as her father is from Trinidad and her mother is from Virginia. Growing up, she fully embraced both her Trinidadian and Southern African-American heritage. One thing both cultures share and has greatly impacted her being is the value of education and hard work. Taylor has been interested in Marine Biology since childhood where she explored the waters of several Caribbean Islands, including Trinidad & Tobago. Upon graduation from university, Taylor intends to continue with marine and environmental research and to advocate for policies to make the world a more sustainable place to live.
