Taylor is pictured on screen.
Celebrating homecoming week. Before a Friday night football game, Taylor and her friends decided to drink. After the game Taylor and her friends went to an abandoned airport in Norfolk to continue their party. After an argument with a girlfriend, Taylor walked off, alone, through a wooded area. Lost, cold and confused Taylor ultimately drowned in two feet of water. Kathi acknowledges that this series of bad decisions by Taylor and her friends is what ultimately led to Taylor's death.
|students lined up to thank Kathi after |
sharing her story.
Thank you Kathi for sharing your story with the students and faculty at Burlington High School.
Kathi's message is one that our students will hear throughout the year, make good decisions. This message can be about alcohol use, texting and driving, drugs, or any other dangerous/destructive decisions that our students are faced with. Mrs. Doughty, Ms. Deacon, and our SADD club (students against destructive decisions) have speakers and events planned throughout the year to remind our community about the importance of good decision making and the consequences you may face as a result of bad decisions. kathi's story certainly reminded us of that today.
