Taylor White, a senior at GD, was in the home when the fire erupted. She won’t admit it but Taylor proved to be hero that day. Taylor kept a level head and acted quickly. She physically removed David Mcleod from the home as he initially attempted to go rescue the family dog. Taylor and David jumped from a second story window to escape the flames. The Mcleod family has endured a difficult few months. Not only did they lose their dog, their home, and all of their possessions in the recent fire, but they also lost their mother this past summer. A tragic story.
In an effort to help a family in a neighboring town Taylor spearheaded an effort to raise much needed funds for the family. Through bake sales and donations we raised nearly 1,000 dollars. I have included a link to a donation page dedicated to help the family.
