Taylor Parsons was crowned Miss Tennessee’s Outstanding Teen 2019 at Gallatin High School on March 30, 2019. Taylor is a 16-year-old Junior who attends Johnson County High School in her hometown of Mountain City. Her platform is “The Color Red” through which she teaches the importance of our responsibility to raise up our brothers and sisters who are desperately trying to survive the effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In Taylor’s words, we are to “share our biscuits” through blood donations that are required by those undergoing cancer treatments. The blood drives that Taylor has organized help to support the tremendous need for these and terminally ill patients requiring lifesaving transfusions; patients to whom over 30% of all blood donations are provided. Her hope is that she can become a national ambassador for the American Red Cross.
Taylor is also an accomplished athlete. She has played on her Varsity Basketball, Volleyball and Tennis teams since her Freshman year receiving MVP, All-Conference, and Rookie of the Year. Taylor is a Children’s Worship Leader at her church and enjoys volunteering in her community at various events and community drives. She is also a member of Student Council, National Honor Society, Health Occupational Students of America and Ethics Club. Her talent is clogging; she has been clogging for many years and has been awarded several national titles. She will be performing her energetic clogging routine to, “Devil Went Down to Georgia” throughout her reign. Taylor will represent the State of Tennessee at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Competition in Orlando, FL, this July where she will compete for thousands of dollars in college scholarships.
