Read the Paulick Report story about Elle Harrell:

I am so proud of North American Racing Academy horseman graduate, Elle Harrell! During her two years with BCTC-NARA, Elle demonstrated relentless determination to succeed in the Thoroughbred industry through her strong work ethic and inquisitive desire to learn. Regardless of the situation, Elle would demonstrate a humble nature, always eager to learn and work hard. She met each challenge with a positive outlook and was always one of the first to ask what she could do to help, said North American Racing Academy Program Coordinator Dixie Hayes.
