Taylor Warner was drawn to PC because of the feeling of community and the service aspect of the school. Her experience at PC was one filled with service opportunities locally and abroad, and this commitment to service combined with education has defined her.
“The PC experience with smaller classes and professors who serve as mentors and role models has meant so much to me,” Taylor said. “The liberal arts approach to learning has broadened my perspective greatly.”
Taylor has been busy completing coursework for her triple major (History, Political Science and International Studies) and a double minor (Psychology and Chinese Studies). During her time as a PC student, Taylor has participated in a number of study abroad programs, spending time in Egypt, Wales and China.
Taylor’s passion for service, combined with PC’s motto, “While we live, we serve,” led her to be very active in PC’s Student Volunteer Services program. She also leads the Big Brother/Big Sister program at Thornwell and works with PC-V, a campus campaign to raise awareness about violence against women in the U.S and abroad. Taylor’s commitment to service was acknowledged during the Honors Day Convocation as she received the Jack and Jane Presseau Community Service Award for 2013.
“The approach to learning at PC is wonderful,” Taylor said. “It allowed me to use the experiences from my extracurricular activities in the classroom, deepening the learning experience.”
After graduation, Taylor will move to Phoenix, Arizona to become a teacher with Teach for America. She looks forward to helping students rise above challenging conditions to learn and experience new opportunities.
