Taylor McClain featured in WCHS Academic Spotlight


Taylor McClain is a senior at White County High School, and she has made serving others a priority over the past four years.

McClain, who plans to attend the University of Tennessee and study to become a veterinarian, said one of her favorite quotes sums her up as a person: “I will give my all for Tennessee today.”

The WCHS senior is a member of the school’s student council, FFA, Interact Club, and International Club – all of which have given her the chance to do what she is passionate about: volunteering and getting involved in her community. McClain has also been able to explore her program of study through White County High School’s work-based learning program which allowed her to spend part of her school day at Bluegrass Veterinary Clinic. In addition to getting prepared for her future career through hands-on experience, McClain used the opportunity to get closer to her community and learn how she can best serve them.

Getting to know her community, serving her neighbors, and meeting the needs of those with whom she comes in contact is a passion that drives McClain. She has even used her after-school job, working Potter’s Ace Hardware Store, in Sparta, as a way to build relationships that will help her better know her community and serve others.

“Taylor is an outstanding, well-rounded student and member of her school community. She has devoted four years of her high school career to our WCHS Interact Club and has served as club president for the last year. She is a leader among her peers and leads others by example. She is hardworking, outgoing, humble, and kind,” White County faculty member and Interact Club sponsor Allison Boston said. “She is simply one of the best of the best in her class. It has been an honor to know her and watch her grow throughout high school.”
