A student from Hattiesburg received a $25,000 Live Más Scholarship from the Taco Bell Foundation.
Noah Harris was one of 300 young people across the country who won a scholarship, with 8,000 students applying, and only one of 16 to receive the largest scholarship.
Harris will use the scholarship to study political science at Harvard University. He plans to become a lawyer and a public official to give people a voice through politics.
The Taco Bell Foundation awarded $3 million in scholarships this year. The scholarship is designed to help youth and employees pursue their unique passions.
