An Expression of Sympathy to the Family of Horace Wilder On behalf of the Taylor County Board of Education and the faculty and staff of the Taylor County School System, we offer our condolences to the family of Horace Wilder. He has served our school system for over 40 years through his work as a bus driver and a custodian. In recent years, he has served part-time as a custodian inspiring us as he persevered through health challenges. Our hearts are broken as we reflect on his faithfulness to serve the students of Taylor County for so many years. He will be greatly missed. In his memory, we will be placing a wreath on his old bus in front of the high school and on the sign at the bus garage. With Our Deepest Sympathy, Jennifer Albritton Taylor County School Superintendent
