Clinton Taylor Scholarship
The Clinton Taylor Memorial Scholarship, sponsored by the law firm of Burr & Forman, is given to the student on the debate team who best embodies the hard work, dedication, team spirit, and strong character that Clinton Taylor demonstrated while being a leader on the Mountain Brook debate team. His parents, George and Honey Taylor, have been active volunteers for the program over the years and generously created the scholarship in Clinton's name to further support what was their son's greatest passion. During Clinton's time on the team, he won numerous awards and was an integral team member due to his charitable nature combined with his adept debate skills. The scholarship rewards those Mountain Brook students who are deserving of carrying on Clinton's legacy.
