About Frank

The Rising to the Challenge Scholarship in honor of Rev. Franklin Fields Taylor was conceived by his beloved best friends, Cindy & Ron Noton, to commemorate & memorialize their love and friendship for Frank.

He was a member of the St. James Missionary Baptist Church from 1991-2020. He was also a licensed and ordained minister, pastor, counselor, advocate, leader, mentor, teacher (national & state level) and evangelist.
