Taylor Rudd MGS Memorial

As many of you may already know, my name is Jeanine Hess, and I was the head softball coach at Metamora Grade School for 7 years. Taylor Rudd was an athlete of mine from 2005-2007. She was one of the most hard working and dedicated athletes that I have had the honor of coaching.  She is one of the many reasons why we had such successful seasons. One of which includes undefeated State Champions in 2007. Taylor was also a daughter, a friend, and a mentor to so many others. Her smile and laugh could light up a room instantly. Tradigically, Taylor lost her life in an automobile accident on  November 12, 2019. I want her hard work and dedication to the MGS softball program to never be forgotten.  Therefore, I am using this page to collect donations for a memory rock that will be placed at the MGS softball field. Any extra funds will go straight to the MGS softball program.
