Pricilla Taylor Kennedy '65

At Springside, Priscilla Taylor Kennedy played varsity field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse all four years and was captain of the field hockey and lacrosse teams her senior year. She was a member of the Athletic Association for three years and president her senior year.  Priscilla pursued her love of athletics at Vassar where she joined the field hockey and lacrosse club teams. She excelled at both, but lacrosse appeared to be her true love, and she made the U.S. Women’s Lacrosse team in her sophomore year, playing on this soon-to-be-world-famous team for the next seven years. She was an attack wing and a leading scorer. Priscilla continued to follow her passion for athletics as the Athletic Director of Tuxedo Park School (1987-1994), where The Priscilla Taylor Kennedy Award was established and given to the best female athlete of the school. When her family moved to Massachusetts, she became the coach of the lacrosse team of Friends Academy in Dartmouth, MA for five years. In her yearbook, Priscilla’s peers say, “By means of her reserved devotion and competitive spirit, she has instilled in each team member a desire to succeed.” Priscilla has done this throughout her life as a team member, leader, and coach.
