M-W CARES presents Taylor’s Message

on March 20, 2019

On Tuesday, March 19, the hearts of Monroe-Woodbury High School students were touched by Taylor’s Message. Kathi Meyer Sullivan is a mother of three from Plainville, Massachusetts who now speaks to students about alcohol abuse and underage drinking. Tragically, in October 2008, she lost her daughter Taylor Lee Meyer who was only 17 years old. After a night of binge drinking and poor choices at a campfire party, Taylor found herself alone in the woods and drowned in only two feet of water. Two months after Taylor’s passing, Kathi started sharing their story in hopes that her message would enlighten others on the dangers of underage drinking. Taylor’s message emphasizes the importance of not giving in to peer pressure and always having each others’ backs. Her story is heart wrenching, but will have a lasting impact on the students’ lives.
