Montgomery Taylor — 2020 High Schoolers Who Will Change The World


Montgomery Taylor

Springville High School

Parents David & Amy Taylor

In ninth grade, Montgomery found his voice. He played the lead in his school’s production of “Singin’ in the Rain,” which led him to other opportunities including drama guild, choir, cross country, Key Club, HOPE Squad and, eventually, student body president. His ultimate “voice goal” is to add it to the music of BYU’s Vocal Point.

Future plans Serve a mission and then attend the Marriott School of Business at BYU with a full-tuition scholarship, majoring in experience design and management. I hope to start a family and enable people around me to enjoy life a little more than they did before!

Personal motto “Leave the world a better place than when you found it.”

Guilty pleasure A 32-ounce Apple Beer from Jake’s Brookside Gas Station.

Change the world Changing the life of one person for the better is like dropping a rock in a lake, and I want to be the catalyst for these ripple effects.

High school memories My best memories are after the storms and deadlines are over, relaxing with my buddies and reflecting on what we’ve done.

School spirit I love combining the feel of a small town high school with the size and opportunities of a bigger high school. The students and community come together to support each other in such a special and significant way.

Best advice The director of my a cappella group explained that people judging my audition want me to succeed and to be the best I can be. I like to apply this to other subjects. People want me to succeed, and they would love to see me do amazing things.
