State Honoree

Traci Taylor


Traci Taylor, Cape Girardeau Central Junior High School, was recognized for establishing the "Toy Train," which provides toys to children in Southeast Missouri Hospital. Traci, a cancer patient herself, knew firsthand how to make a kid's hospital stay a little easier. Working with her family and church, Traci built a cart and stocks it with toys for young patients. To raise funds, she speaks at local organizations and encourages donations.
