Westside Senior Named Work-Based Learning Region 5 Student of the Year | Business
Taylor Babbs, a graduating senior at Westside High School, was chosen as Work-Based Learning (WBL) Student of the Year for Region 5. Each candidate was judged based on their WBL involvement, letters of recommendation, résumé and their response to the following questions: How has your WBL experience prepared or shaped your future career goals? Where do you see yourself in 5 years, and then 10 years? What coursework has prepared you for work and your future career?
Taylor, an employee at Chick-fil-A, has been an exceptional leader throughout her entire high school career. In addition to being President of her DECA chapter, Taylor was also Captain of the Westside High School Cheerleading Squad, an Officer in the Westside High School Air Force JROTC Program, as well as being voted Best All-Around by her fellow classmates.
Steve Neil, WBL Coordinator at Westside High School, described Taylor as, “a tremendous worker, student and person.” He went on to state, “Taylor is my most consistent student in the program. She completes her work and assignments on time and always earns raves on her evaluations.”
In March, Taylor was chosen as the Bibb County Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) Student of the Year, which includes delegates from all seven high schools. The winner was chosen based on their high school résumé, community service involvement, grade point average (GPA), essay response and their dedication to CTAE.
Taylor has been awarded a full scholarship to Wesleyan College in the fall.
