Taylor

The Story:

The Woodward office assisted Taylor with services and being successful. He received assistance through receiving college training for his Bachelor’s Degree in History from North West Oklahoma State.  Without the assistance from DRS, he would not be able to have an education nor information for applying for jobs.

Taylor volunteered at the Woodward Pioneer Museum and through that experience was able to be employed at the Fort Supply Historic Site as a Site Manager. He graduated high school from Fort Supply and knows everyone. This is a perfect job for him as he gets to do research about the different historical sites (mostly Fort Supply), gets to be a tour guide for when people visit and he maintains the grounds of the site.  He is doing well and loves his job.There is a lot of history in the Historic Site that Taylor can tell you about. If you get a chance, go by and visit. You can find more information about it at www.okhistory.org/sites/fortsupply.
