Taylor Walroth

Taylor is the daughter of Tim and Lori Walroth of Hurricane, WV. She resides in Hurricane with her parents, two brothers and sister. Taylor is a dedicated senior at Hurricane High School and has taken Advanced Placement and college level classes when given the opportunity. She currently maintains a 4.16 GPA and is ranked 4th in her graduating class of 295. Taylor is very active outside of the classroom and is a member of National Honor Society, Student Council as Senior Class Publicity Chair, Link Crew, International Club, Chemistry Club, FSEA, Key Club, and DECA. Athletics have played a major role in Taylor's life, as she has been on the Hurricane High School soccer (WVHSSCA ALL-State player in 2015), basketball, track (2014 and 2015 State Champions), and cross country teams. She is also a member of the  WVFC U17 Girl's Travel Team and the 2016 West Virginia Olympic Development Program Soccer Team.

In her free time, Taylor loves spending time with her family, as they are the driving force behind all that she does. Taylor attends mass at Catholic Church of the Ascension in Hurricane. She enjoys spending time at the gym to stay active and healthy. Taylor has a very special bond with her brother Christian, and he is the very reason she pushes herself to stay motivated in life and to take advantage of all that life has to offer. Christian is her inspiration and he and Taylor both live by the motto, "You Were Given This Life Because You Were Strong Enough to Live It". In June of 2016 Taylor placed second runner-up in the highly competitive West Virginia Metro News Scholar Program to attend West Virginia Wesleyan in the fall of 2017 and will receive $10,000 over the four years. She will be working diligently to obtain her MSN from Wesleyan's nursing program and has verbally committed to play on the Lady Bobcats' Soccer Team. Nurses and medical personnel have had a direct impact on her brother's life and are the reason he is alive today. Taylor wants nothing more than to have that very same impact on the lives of others by becoming a nurse.
