Aaron Taylor, Class of 2015, loved to cook. He also loved Middle Hall. Now, more than a year after his death, Washington College is honoring his memory with a new kitchen in Middle Hall’s basement, a place where Taylor spent a great deal of time.
On Friday, Sept. 19 at 4 p.m., the campus community was welcomed into Middle Hall for a dedication ceremony. “Aaron played a very vibrant part of WC’s community and I think his death impacted so many of our students in so many different ways,” said Carl Crowe, associate dean of students and director of Residence Life. “It left a gaping hole,”
Senior Caitie Dailey, a good friend of Taylor’s, said, “I was really pleased that WC gave his friends and family from home an outlet to come together.”
She said, “I think the kitchen was a great decision to do something in Aaron’s honor because he loved to cook and he spent a lot of time in Middle. He was great at cooking, like amazing at cooking.”
