Taylor SIngleton, Little Miss Greer, was acknowledged Wednesday with a proclamation from the City of Greer and Mayor Rick Danner for her community service efforts and upcoming participation in the Little Miss South Carolina pageant.

Taylor Singleton, Little Miss Greer, will compete in the Little Miss South Carolina pageant next month in Hartsville. She is the 8-year old daughter of Chad and Angela Singleton and is an honor student and student council representative at Reidville Elementary School.  She is also a competition dance team member at Rhythms Dance.

During the past year, Taylor has volunteered for 16 organization on over 40 projects, logging 417 hours collecting money and items valued at $10,674.  Some of the organization she has assisted are the American Cancer Society, Middle Tyger Community Center, Spartanburg Humane Society, American Childhood Cancer Organization, and Children's Miracle Network.  She has collected canned food, pet and school supplies, paper goods, and travel items and serves as a teacher's assistant at her dance school and a member of the "Rocket Squad" leadership team at her school.  She has also read to kids, painted faces, decorate luminary bags for Relay for Life, served as a greeter at events, and even wore pajamas to dance to raise money for kids with cancer.

Taylor began creating projects to benefit the Children's Shelter of the Upstate.  She visited some of the shelter children which lead her to consider what she could do for them.  "It made me really sad because most of the kids at the shelter don't have families and I wanted to do things to make them feel better so they wouldn't be lonely.  I came up with a few projects just for them," Taylor said. "I had a great time helping them because I know I made them smile."
