Lauren and Joshua Taylor

While Lauren and Joshua were dating, Lauren attended Anderson University as an undergraduate. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations & Advertising in 2008 and the couple married in 2009. Lauren’s life was greatly impacted by her time at Anderson University and she decided to enroll in a masters program. At around the same time, Joshua made the decision to further his education at AU in a new program. Lauren graduated with a Master of Business Administration in 2013 and Joshua was the first graduate of the Bachelor of Emergency Services Management (Whole Community) degree in 2014. Joshua recently graduated again with a Master of Public Policy and Administration from Liberty University. 
Lauren is the Director of Continuing Professional Development at Upstate Area Health Education Consortium (AHEC) in Greenville, SC where she oversees and markets continuing education programs for healthcare professionals in 11 Upstate counties. Joshua, an Advanced EMT, is the Upstate Operations Manager for Medshore Ambulance Service in Anderson, SC. Joshua has over 20 years of combined experience in public service and emergency management. 
 The friendships the Taylors have built through their experiences at AU will last a lifetime. The growth they’ve seen at the University in recent years is something that they are very proud of and they hope to continue to see programs prosper. Lauren and Joshua both enjoy the opportunity to give back to their alma mater by serving on the AU Alumni Board. 
 The Taylor family remains True to AU!
