Taylor Carley Honored for Advocacy Work

Hattiesburg native Taylor Carley was featured in the May 2014 AUCDigest.  Taylor has many dreams, and each day he works toward the goal of achieving them.

The 20-year-old, who has autism, has found his calling in life: helping people and being an advocate.

Whether it's being the best at his job at Sam's Club helping motorists fuel up or proving to the world that people with disabilities have just as many abilities as anyone else, Carley embraces each day with enthusiasm.

Likewise he was featured in the Hattiesburg American.
