      President Taylor (VP at the time of this award), is also a long-time Regional Toastmaster Leader. Throughout the year, he worked tirelessly with the Caldwell Club kids and their Coach to help them develop poise and polish their presentation skills.
      Moreover, Mr. Taylor originated a club meeting format with members taking leadership roles even as they learn how to conduct their own meetings.
      In developing and proving the success of his format, Mr. Taylor so impressed the 'National' Society that it is recommending his format for all clubs across the country.
      The Society is forever grateful for Mr. Taylor's contribution of time and expertise to benefit all future Booker T. Clubbers nationwide.
