Gary J. Taylor Memorial Fund
To honor Gary’s spirit and acknowledge the outstanding accomplishments of a young person, we introduce Avery Nelson, the first recipient of the Gary J. Taylor Memorial award. Avery is a graduate of our YouthBuild program, a former Award of Excellence winner and has been gainfully employed for a number of years. Recently, he expressed a desire to continue his training to provide an even better life for his family. To support Avery, as he embarks on this new journey, it is our honor and privilege to provide him a scholarship in memory of our beloved Gary. Give to the Gary J. Taylor Memorial Fund.
