Major Brent Taylor Leadership Legacy

Help us carry forth the legacy of service-oriented leadership that was exemplified by US Army  Major Brent Taylor, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on November 3, 2018 while having taken leave from his elected position as the mayor of North Ogden City, Utah.  

The Major Brent Taylor Leadership Legacy Foundation aims to:

TRAIN current and future leaders through leadership workshops and scholarship opportunities. 

HONOR local military members and their families through telling their stories and celebrating their service. . 

ENGAGE community members through cultural and performing arts events. 

Our initial project in TRAINING service-oriented leaders is to fully fund the Memorial Scholarships in Brent's name at each of his Alma Maters--Brigham Young University and the University of Utah.  Additional funds will be used to sponsor leadership training opportunities for youth and adults alike.  

Our initial project in HONORING military members and their families is to have a Gold Star Families Monument installed in North Ogden City  and another one near the Utah State Capitol grounds in Salt Lake City.   Similar monuments are being built all over the nation, through the Hershel "Woody" Williams Medal of Honor Foundation.  These will be the first such monuments in the state of Utah.  Learn more at

Our initial project in ENGAGING individuals, families and businesses involves spreading the word about this new Foundation, and creating an uplifting and inspiring presence on a variety of social media platforms. 

We hope you'll join us and make a donation today!
