2022 Woodland High School graduate receives community service award

WOODLAND — Woodland High School’s Taylor Curnutt received the Silent Servant Student Award from the Peter R. Marsh Foundation, which includes a plaque as well as a $500 grant to be used for Taylor’s future endeavours.

Taylor received the award for her countless hours of community service through the Clark County Executive Horse Council’s Adopt-a-Horse program. “I welcome horses acquired from Clark County Animal Control with care, including transportation, feeding, grooming, cleaning stalls, and delivering hay to other foster homes in Clark County” , she said. “Sometimes that job involves holding horses as they go through their final hours.” In addition to her work as a foster carer for rescued horses, Taylor has also volunteered with Healing Steps, an agency that uses occupational therapy with horses to help patients achieve their goals, including recovery. of physical trauma.

Taylor has participated in the town of Woodland’s Make a Difference Day every year since she was in middle school. “This annual day of caring sees our community come together,” she said. “Everyone helps each other with whatever needs to be done.” While at Woodland High School, Taylor has served as a Beaver Crew Team Leader since 2019, worked at the FFA Plant Sale for the past two years, and received the Woodland High School Service Award in 2018.
