“I choose to Be Strong in my school, my community and the hearts of those around me by starting a We Dine Together club at Martinsburg High School.”

-Taylor

Why Taylor was Nominated:

Taylor is a smart, kind and compassionate student that loves to help others. I shared the information about We Dine Together with her and she quickly jumped into action! The very first week of school she recruited several classmates and started “meeting and eating” with new students at lunchtime. She would like to share this great program with others by starting a school club. I can not think of a better representative for Martinsburg High School than Taylor for this program.

State Representative Taylor G.

Taylor - West Virginia Student Rep Profile Image

“High School should be a positive experience for everyone. People should be able to have a friend-group, or a peer, or a teacher, that they always feel that they belong with, and rely on. And I think that bulling destroys those types of relationships that are so important during the high school years.”

-Taylor

Why Taylor was Nominated:

I would like to Nominate Taylor, 12th grader from Parkersburg High School in Parkersburg, WV. Taylor is a 4.0 student who has taken the initiative to create a kindness club at our school.
