Nancy Porter Taylor – Employee of the Month


After graduating from UAB in 1981 with a BS degree in nursing, Mrs. Taylor began her nursing career working at Brookwood Hospital on the Cardiovascular Unit. She and her husband decided to move back to Chilton County where they had been raised. She was then employed by Baptist Medical Center Chilton.

After her boys, Kevin and Stephen, were born, she took a position with the Chilton County Health Department as a home health nurse. Kevin and his wife, Holleigh, live in Homewood and have a 5 month old daughter named Libby. Stephen and his wife, Chelsey, live in Daphne. Her sons graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Their father is also an Auburn graduate. Their grandfather, Buddy Taylor, is the most devoted Auburn fan in the family, missing only 2 home games in 62 years and going to all of the Auburn/Alabama games for 65 years.  

Mrs. Taylor later began working with the Chilton County School System in 1993. Upon Mrs. Billie Heaton’s retirement, Mrs. Taylor assumed the role as the only school nurse for the Chilton County school system. She joined Mrs. Debra Sosa as the second Health Science Instructor in 2007 at LeCroy Career Technical Center. Mrs. Misty Cleckler joined Mrs. Taylor as a Health Science Instructor at LeCroy Career Tech Center after Mrs. Sosa’s retirement in 2016.

The Health Science Program is a two year program introducing students to the health care system. It assists students in making realistic career decisions and prepares them for acceptance in postsecondary healthcare education programs and/or employment in health care jobs.

Mrs. Taylor teaches the junior class. Students learn about the different career opportunities in health care, theory based learning in anatomy/physiology and medical terminology. Students are trained in the classroom and laboratory.

Mrs. Cleckler teaches the senior class. Instruction includes basic nursing skills, venipuncture, EKG testing and interpretation. Students are trained in the classroom, laboratory, and clinical setting.

After 37 years of service as a nurse/ health science instructor, Mrs. Taylor plans to retire June 1st, 2018. She looks forward to the next phase of her life, spending time with family and friends.
