“The way to lead most effectively is through serving others. You are only effective if you demonstrate the work you want others to model.”
Haydon Tucker '15
As a legacy student, Baylor has been a huge part of Haydon's family and once she came, as a eighth grader, she began to understand why. She loves her pottery class and the beautiful campus. Baylor has offered her many opportunities, including community service.
Baylor's community service program takes over a 100 tutors to five different sites in Chattanooga. There, students like Haydon help younger students with homework and building meaningful relationships. Haydon saw her freshman year that students at Westside did not struggle because they could not succeed, but because no one set expectations for them. This inspired her to write and publish a children's book about a turtle that hoped to someday live in a tree. Seniors from Baylor brought the book to Harlem when they traveled there for a community service seminar. Since then, Haydon continues to work with the program as a site leader and with the annual Community Service holiday party.
