In this week’s Senior Profile the spotlight shines on Taylor McGrath, a friendly, creative, and loyal senior at Reading Memorial High School.

For her senior year Taylor has taken a great selection of classes including, AP Biology, AP US Government and Politics, Honors Diverse Voices, Honors Horror, Honors Psychology and Intro to Calculus.

During her time at the high school, Taylor volunteered as a student demonstrator for Reading Pop Warner Cheer. She wanted to give back to the program after it had such a positive impact on her.

Taylor says that she wanted younger kids to be able to enjoy the same things she did through Reading Pop Warner Cheer.

Some quick fun facts about Taylor are that her favorite food is macaroni and cheese. Her favorite music artist is Taylor Swift. Taylor’s favorite dessert is ice cream and her favorite animal is a dog. In her free time Taylor enjoys hanging out with her friends and listening to music.

When asked what Taylor’s most exciting moment of high school was, she says it was the days leading up to the end of the school year.

Taylor writes, “The last couple days of school were so memorable and I loved being able to spend time with all my classmates and participate in activities one last time before we ended school.”

Some of the activities that Taylor and other seniors enjoyed included the senior sunrise, decorating parking spots with chalk, and participating in the senior spirit week.

While taking challenging classes and volunteering around the community, Taylor has also been able to balance a sport. She has been a cheerleader on the Reading Memorial High School cheerleading team since her freshman year.

Taylor is also part of the National Honor Society at RMHS.

Taylor would like to give thanks to her guidance counselor, Ms. Rondeau for her success at the high school and in planning for life outside of RMHS. Taylor says that Ms. Rondeau was extremely supportive of her.

In the fall Taylor will be attending Fairfield University. She is currently undecided on a major.
