Taylor was cast in Westmoore High School musicals including “Seussical,” “Guys and Dolls” and “The Music Man.”
At Westmoore he is the Drama Club president, a member of the Principal's Advisory Council and the tenor section leader of the chamber choir.
He is a three-year member of the All-State Mixed Choir, a three-year member of the All-State Jazz Chorus and a three-year all-star cast member in one-act play competitions.
Taylor is a graduate of his church's early-morning religious education program and is an Eagle Scout.
Missionary work will not be entirely new to Taylor, who moved from Salt Lake City with his family when his parents, Nolan and Rhonda Taylor, were called to serve as missionaries in the Oklahoma City Mission of the church.
His father serves as the mission president to 168 young adult missionaries and 11 senior couples. The family's full-time missionary service comes to an end in June.
