“Tayton is respectful, responsible, determined and hard working,” said SVHS Spanish Teacher Sheana Siegel. “Setbacks beware because there is no bump in the road too big for this student. Whether it’s an exam, project or other activity, Tayton works to his highest potential and performs well.”

Tayton is a well-rounded student athlete, excelling in both academics and extra-curricular activities. He participates in basketball, cross country and track and is a member of National Honor Society and FFA.

Tayton is the son of Bill and Jill Vincent. After high school, he plans to attend a four-year college to pursue a career in the medical field. He also hopes to play basketball. In his free time, he enjoys archery hunting.

The “Student of the Month” is awarded through a partnership of Heartland and KJAM Radio in Madison, and recognizes exceptional students in one of five area school districts. Heartland provides wholesale power to the cities of Arlington, Colman, Howard, Madison and Volga, all of which are in the KJAM listening area.  Each month of the school year, Heartland presents an outstanding student from one of these schools with a recognition certificate and small token, and advertisements announcing the winning student air on KJAM Radio.  Officials from each participating school nominate students for the award.  This is the fifth year Heartland and KJAM have teamed up to offer this program.
