She has taken a rigorous high school course load, including four-dual enrollment courses. She has used her free periods to aid in the special education program at Cony as a peer pal, helping students with their academics and homework.

She played on the unified basketball team. She is the secretary for Cony’s National Honor Society, belongs to the German Honor Society and will be inducted into the National Technical Honor Society in May.

She has volunteered with the Togus VA Medical Center, as well as in Florida with her grandparents and Hampton Helping Hands. She has helped with local youth field hockey and lacrosse camps. She played field hockey and lacrosse at Cony and also has served a variety of roles in the annual Chizzle Wizzle production, according to the release.

Her instructor, Bethany Sherman said, “I am certain Taylor will achieve any and all goals that she sets for herself and will continue to be an asset to her community,” according to the release.

She was honored April 27 at the annual Maine Administrators of Career and Technical Education Banquet. The banquet was held at The Green Ladle in Lewiston. The organization recognizes one student from each of the 27 career and technical centers in Maine. Davis also will be one of the center’s featured speakers at its May 29 Recognition Day ceremony.

In the fall, Davis plans to attend the Maine College of Health Professionals to study radiology.
