Taylor Curnutt received the award for the countless hours of community service she performed in the Clark County Executive Horse Council’s Adopt-a-Horse Program
Woodland High School’s Taylor Curnutt received the Silent Servant Student Award from the Peter R. Marsh Foundation which includes a special plaque along with a $500 grant for use toward Taylor’s future plans.
Curnutt received the award for the countless hours of community service she performed in the Clark County Executive Horse Council’s Adopt-a-Horse Program.
“I foster horses acquired from the Clark County Animal Control with care including transportation, feeding, grooming, cleaning stalls, and delivering hay to other foster homes throughout Clark County,” she said. “Sometimes, this work includes holding horses as they pass on in their final hours.”
In addition to her work as a foster for rescued horses, Curnutt also volunteered at Healing Steps, an agency which uses occupational therapy with horses to help patients reach their goals including recovering from physical trauma.
Curnutt has participated with the city of Woodland’s Make a Difference Day every year since she attended middle school.
“This annual day of caring sees our community come together,” she said. “Everyone helps out one another with whatever needs to be done.”
While at Woodland High School, Curnutt served as a Beaver Crew leader since 2019, worked at the FFA Plant Sale for the past two years, and received the Woodland High School Service Award in 2018.
