New AEB Portrait Celebrates Coach T.

Family and friends honored Faculty Emeritus Bill Taylor at his Alumni Executive Board portrait unveiling November 15. Led by AEB President Ted Simpson ’85, the evening featured memorable tributes punctuated with humorous anecdotes from Bubba Halliday’82, Headmaster Emeritus Ellis Haguewood, and Headmaster Pete Sanders.
Coach T. was a triple threat at MUS for 44 years, coaching the tennis team to record heights; reinvigorating the MUS in Europe program; and teaching Biology, AP Biology, and Genetics. Beloved by students and athletes, he is known for his ever-calm demeanor and dry wit – plus the milkshakes he regularly whipped up for his classes, a tasty blend of what he called the trinity: vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, whole milk, and “the intangible: viscosity.” 

Guests at the portrait unveiling enjoyed milkshakes to celebrate the legendary Coach T.
