Grant Taylor was a senior at Norwin High School who tragically lost his life in the fall of his senior year. He was extremely involved in a variety of organizations.

 Grant was a youth deacon at his church, ran his own lawn care business, and took dance lessons for the majority of his life. He was also a varsity wrestler and a member of the Show Choir. He was a friend to all. Because of his unique and diverse involvement, Grant touched the lives of so many students and members of the community, always bringing joy and laughter to them. Those lives that Grant touched have realized how important it is to “never take life for GRANTed.” It is necessary for us to realize that life is a precious gift and to enjoy the time that we have with each other.

With the help of, Grant’s classmates, the Expressions in Harmony foundation, and the friends and family of Grant Taylor, a scholarship has been created in Grant’s name in order to keep his memory alive and to educate the generations to come.

The award is given to a member of the graduating class at Norwin each year in his honor. Students wishing to receive this scholarship write an essay on how an extra curricular activity or event has taught them to “Never Take Life For GRANTed.”

In addition to that scholarship, a grant titled Grant from GRANT is given out to a child in need at the Hearth Shelter in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With this grant, children who are usually unable to pay for things that we take for granted can buy things like their school year book, school pictures, or shoes for sports.
