Adviser Vicky Edwards
Taylor Brooke Simonich is a student at Harmony Magnet Academy in Strathmore and serves as the Co-President of her CSF chapter. Her activities included Friends of the Library Book Sale, Valentines for Veterans, Holiday cards for retirement community, Harvest Festival fundraiser, and thank you cards for firefighters and health care workers. She is also the Treasurer of The Class of 2021 and has been a member in Link Crew, Key Club, Math Club, and Mathematics, Engineering, Science, & Achievement Club. In addition, Taylor participated in tennis and track.
Of Taylor, Vicky Edwards (CSF Advisor) writes “She is a humble leader, the kind of young woman who is in the limelight not by trying to get attention, but by putting herself behind and at the scenes.” To that end, Taylor volunteered to work with Happy Trails Therapeutic Horsemanship helping those with developmental challenges.
Furthermore, Taylor was chosen to participate in the Bright Energy 101 program where she was trained in the technical aspect of energy, energy auditing, data collection, and making recommendations. William Kelly, CEO of Bright Energy 101, notes “the Energy and Sustainability Program at her school district last year were impressive including saving the school district over $300,000 while reducing their greenhouse gas emission by 13%.”
Taylor intends to continue her education at UCLA studying political science.
