December 2016 Student of the Month

Klaire Taylor - Communications

Klaire Taylor - Student of the Month

My name is Klaire Taylor and I am a Senior at the University of Montana. I’m getting a degree in Communication with a Certificate in Entertainment Management. I chose communication because I love talking to people and learning new things. During my school year I have had the privilege to have TRIO and Disability Services for students (DSS) help me with my education. I have worked very hard to get where I am in life. I’m always pushing myself when someone says I can’t.

I started my education at Missoula College where I earned my Associates degree in Communication. While I was at Missoula College I was able to rush a Sorority that I have been a part of for four years called Kappa Kappa Gamma of Beta Phi Chapter. While I was a part of the sorority I was the Education Chairman as a Freshmen and Public Relations for Panhellenic at the University of Montana during my Sophomore year. During my last semester of my Sophomore year, I was selected as Miss Montana Collegiate America 2014. My platform was “The Crown Cares” by Creating a Respectful Environment in Schools. I traveled to schools in the area talking to kids about anti-bullying.

Between my Junior and Senior year, I was selected as a college intern for the Disney College Program. I worked at Disney Yacht and Beach Club Resort Front Desk for a year. During my time at Walt Disney World in Florida I learned customer service and how to communicate with the guests that checked in and out of the resort. My last semester at the University of Montana will be studying abroad at Aarhus University in Denmark.

These four years I wouldn’t be able to conquer the things that I have done without the support of DSS and TRIO by my side. TRIO supplied an academic coach to help me one on one. It helped me get my school work done and pushed me to achieve my goals. Thank you TRIO for nominating me as December Student of the Month.
