Taytum was recognized Nov. 9 in the media center of Safety Harbor Elementary by her teacher, Rob Ferguson, who described the fifth-grader as helpful to all, quietly confident and modest.

Taytum is a straight-A student who loves to read and learn and is always eager to participate in class discussions. She is willing to take on anything, but doesn't boast about her abilities. Ferguson described her as a joy to teach.

Taytum was accompanied to the ceremony by her parents, Michael and Season McMillian, and sister, Jasmyn.

She was presented with a trophy by this year's Kiwanis president Pam Corbino, along with a family packet of tickets from Ruth Eckerd Hall provided by member Sharon Reid-Kane. The McMillian family, Ferguson and the members of the Kiwanis Club also enjoyed a delicious breakfast provided by the school's cafeteria staff.
