Well, I must say January is off to an incredible start. I am so proud of my daughter Sylaisha and the tribute she established in honor of Sly. In case you missed it, I just wanted to re-share this outstanding announcement from her blog, Think Outside The World on January 10th, 2023:
We are honored to announce that we have officially launched The Sylvester Taylor "Invictus" Hospitality Scholarship.Sylvester, also known as "Sly", "Sly the Wine Guy" or "Bowtie Sly", loved God, Family, his beloved brotherhood, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc, Florida State University Football and most especially he loved his career in Catering & Convention Services. This Certified Meeting Planner & Wine Sommelier looked for opportunities to help others succeed in life and this scholarship will continue to do that as if he were still here today."Invictus," the name of Sylvester's favorite poem, encouraged others to shape their future despite the odds that might discourage them.
