Spencer's Page

Spencer Taylor was 15 years old when he passed away from metastasized Synovial Cell Sarcoma on August 13, 2007. But, this is not how he wants you to remember him. Anyone who knew Spencer, even from a distance, was influenced by his approach to life. His outlook was very simple and straightforward: enjoy each day and make the most of what you are given.

His outlook was contagious and lives on in his friends, many of which are still in the band today. The McKinney North High School Band will present a scholarship to the band student that follows this approach to life -- Spencer's way. As Spencer's parents, we would like to make Spencer's example and his memory a tradition. Our goal is to create a growing endowment that will always fund an annual Spencer Taylor Memorial Scholarship. Spencer made so many friends and influenced so many people during his short life. We want him to be able to continue to do so through this scholarship. You can click on the Donate button below to make a donation to the scholarship fund through paypal.
