Taylor Messick graduated from Sussex Central High School with an exemplary academic record having taken advanced placement classes as well as classes through Del Tech. Her areas of interest include a love of animals, biology, and video production. She will major in mass communication with a minor in biology at Towson State University.
Her varied experiences with 4-H, The Technology Student Association, and the docent program at the Salisbury Zoo have provided her with experiences for community service, leadership roles, and developing confidence.
Taylor has been a member of Hollymount 4-H since 2010 and Sussex County 4-H Junior Counsel since 2015. She has served as president of her local 4-H. She received the Sussex County leadership pin in 2017. She has expanded her leadership qualities by being a camp counselor. In the schools’ broadcasting program she took on the role of lead producer for two bi-weekly shows. Her broadcasting instructor notes that “Taylor takes on more responsibility than the average student in our broadcasting program.”
Community service has become a part of Taylor’s contributions to include making dog treats for animal shelters, participating in canned food drives, making tray favors for meals on wheels, and being a Hopkins Farm Tour Volunteer.
Taylor feels that Towson State University will provide her the opportunity to continue to grow as she develops her interests. Her independence, sense of responsibility, and determination should advance her towards her goals.

Along with her 25 hours of necessary community service and an additional 10 hours required by National Honor Society, Camryn has expanded her community service through her church by being a member of its’ Teen Challenge group.
