Taylor English, Copy Editor

Taylor English is a senior at Pleasant Valley who in addition to having been a diligent student throughout her time at Pleasant Valley, has also been involved in the band as an alto saxophone and spent much of her time rowing for the Y Quad City Rowing Team. Her long-time membership of this championship-winning crew has given her the opportunity to travel around the world for competitions. Similar to her Older Brother Justin who rows at Georgetown, Taylor plans to continue rowing in college as it gives her the chance to “challenge herself and compete”. In her free time, you may catch her painting or getting coffee with friends. Taylor is looking forward to her senior year and the chance to contribute to the running of the online Spartan Shield as a copy editor.
