Swainsboro Elemenatry School’s Allie Taylor has been selected as a 2017 Atlanta Falcons PLAY 60 MVP.
She was one of 11 students from around the state to be selected as such. MVPs were chosen based on their conscious effort and commitment to eating healthy, staying active, and demonstrating sportsmanship at their school.
Taylor and her fellow MVPs will be recognized during an upcoming Falcons game versus the Buffalo Bills on October 1, 2017 at 1 p.m. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Allie is in the fifth grade at Swainsboro Elementary School and was nominated by her physical education teacher, Lara Norton.
“Allie is an excellent student, she makes good grades, and has a great attitude. She works very hard in PE and tries very hard at any game we are playing. Although she has all of these qualities, she has one special quality that makes her stand out from the rest,” said Norton. “Allie is one of the most caring students I know. She constantly looks after the special needs student in her class. She also helps assist the student in any game or activity that she may need help. She makes sure the student feels part of the class, just as anyone else. Allie is a very “selfless” student. You don’t see that very often in 10-year-old kids. She is not boastful with her actions and has never been asked to do these things. She has taken this helpful spirit on herself. She is truly a great student inside and out. She has a kind heart, and it shows through her actions. If anyone deserves an MVP award, it would be Allie.”
