Senior Nelson Edwin Taylor III, also known as Bubba, has just arrived to Saint Francis this school year and right away he fits in as if he had been attending the school his entire life.

He has attended 11 other schools not including SFCHS. His most recent school was Colby High, here in Kansas, but before that he lived in California with his dad. Nelson said his favorite school he has ever attended was Hill City.

“They accepted my comedy and had a lot of technology,” Taylor said. 

Nelson said the worst school he attended was Goodland.

“When I was seven, I was dropped off at the wrong house by the bus driver when I went to Goodland,” Taylor said. “When asked why the busdriver dropped me off in the wrong location the driver said “because it was the ‘hood’ and he assumed I lived there.”  

In his down time, Nelson enjoys playing video games and coding. Nelson’s favorite game to play is “League of Legends, even though I suck at it.”

After high school, Nelson plans to attend Colby Community College for drama. 

After college, Nelson said he would like to be a comedian.

“It warms my heart to put a smile on people’s faces that I’m not familiar with,” he said. 

Nelson’s favorite comedian is Kevin Hart. 

“He’s super short and that alone is funny,” Taylor said. 

Music Teacher Talley Morrow has Nelson in band and vocal.

“Nelson is a great addition to my classes and is catching on very quickly,” Morrow said. “He puts in a lot of effort and is becoming very comfortable here.”  

Nelson said if he could have any superpower it would be healing abilities. 

“Because I can’t hurt another soul it’s not in my blood,” Taylor said. 

Nelson’s number one goal as a freshman was to maintain his straight A average in school, however, “English destroyed me so that didn’t last long.” 

Nelson advised younger students in Saint Francis. 

“Respect teachers, don’t Juul in school, and stay positive,” Taylor said.
