Taylor Initiated at Beta Omicron Chapter (BO-22-61Fa), Tennessee State University. He earned a Civil Engineering degree (B.S.) from Tennessee State University and a Masters in Engineering Administration from The George Washington University.

In 1993, Brother Taylor received the Distinguished Alumni Award for Civil Engineering from Tennessee State University where he remains active with the Alumni Association. Brother Taylor remembers, “In 1985, I had been a member of Iota Upsilon Lambda Chapter in Silver Spring. At the time, J.P. who is now my wife,was riding to work with Brother Eugene Thomas. In conversation, Gene told her he was leading an effort to start a new chapter in the District of Columbia with a number of like—minded Brothers. She informed him that I was a Brother and might be interested. Gene invited me to a Happy Hour at, I believe, The Ibex Club to meet the other interested Brothers and I liked the potential for progress and Brotherhood. I became involved”
