The Legacy Award is given to those teachers, faculty and staff who have demonstrated distinguished service as a robotics head coach.
Taylor has been the robotics coach and sponsor at AMCHS since 2001 and his teams have won first place at the regional competition nine out of the last 11 years.
Dr. Michael Weinan, President of Brazos BEST Robotics said in the award ceremony honoring Taylor and two other coaches from the Brazos Valley, “It is hard to be a BEST coach. Teams are only successful when there is someone who cares enough. I’ve seen their students grow to be graduate engineering students, volunteers, and mentors to other BEST teams. BEST is working because of teachers like them.”
