Pasadena, Calif., - Welcome to Lancer Spotlight, a series that features PCC students in action.  Today, the spotlight features PCC student Taylor Cooper, a Pathways honor student, and an equestrian who will ride in the 125th Tournament of Roses® parade presented by Honda, on January 1, 2014.

Taylor, a first year student at PCC and graduate of Maranatha High School has a passion for animals, horseback riding, photography and community service.  She plans to study veterinary medicine and can be found volunteering for organizations such as the Pasadena Humane Society, MACH 1, Danny's Farm, and the Ronald MacDonald House.  

Taylor plans to ride her horse, Marley, in the 2014 Rose Parade® with the War Horse Foundation.  The War Horse Foundation seeks to promote an "equine spirit" from the past by presenting famous cavalry regiments throughout history in parades, festivals, and battle reenactments. 

As a student and rider, Taylor believes that with a "positive attitude, the will to do your best, anything can be accomplished."  Taylor and Marley can also be seen on December 29, 2013, performing with the War House Foundation in Equestfest representing the "Regency Age" on RFDTV.  Equestfest will take place at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
