Liam Alexander Taylor Scholarship

Liam Alexander Taylor lived gently on the planet. Alex, nicknamed “Skinny” and “Red”, was a top surfer and skateboarder on California’s Central Coast. He made a difference every day of his life through service and compassion to nature and his community. His daily acts of kindness impacted hearts in massive ways. If you had ever met him, you would quickly receive a warm spirit and bright smile. He was so proud to work as a San Luis Obispo County lifeguard, positioned at Cayucos Beach, a Junior Lifeguards Program instructor and mentor, and a member of Cambria Fire Department’s North Coast Ocean Rescue Team. Liam died surfing a wave at Moonstone Beach in Cambria, at sunset on August 18, 2017. 

This Scholarship Fund is to continue and memorialize Alex’s acts of service and indefatigable kindness. It is designed for those students who live with that kindness and compassion and who desire to pursue a service-oriented career.
