Hope Squad Member Gracey Pilcher

Gracey Pilcher is a Senior at Grantsville High School and she has been a part of Hope Squad for the last three years.

She was homeschooled for the first year of high school so she was a freshman.

Then she came to high school in her Sophomore year and wanted to join Hope Squad because she always wanted to help people, make a difference in people’s lives and help people who are going through tough times to see that there is a light under the tunnel and that suicide is not the answer.

Hope Squad is a suicide prevention squad and she has been in the club for the last 3 yearsñ she says that the most memorable most rewarding thing is being in the club with her club mates and them being all together making plans and activities and bonding with everyone in the team and seeing everyone work together it makes her really happy that everyone can get along.

They do a whole month in February for suicide prevention, where they make posters and different handouts and they put balloons out in the halls, they try to do different things every time.

It is not a very common thing and they don’t have that many people they really need more people to join and interact with the club because its not one of the clubs that people talk about and most people don’t know what the club is all about.

They want more people to join so they can get more ideas and so they can get more funds so they can help more.

This is not a very talked about club and not a lot of people know or want to join because they dont know.

About the Contributor
Taylie Richmond has always been different from the others of her age; she moved so many times that she had to grow up early, but a passion has always been in her, since she was born. Her family has always trained horses, and she loved them since the first sight. She's always ridden horses. One day in 2nd grade she found out a life-changing hobby that she kept with her since then: training horses. She’s been training horses for more than 10 years now, but she doesn’t do this only for Rodeo, she trains them because she loves it. Patience is not her strong point but she loves to see her horses happy; “Seeing them grow with me, seeing them have a bad day but knowing how to help them is so rewarding”. Training horses is hard, because a lot depends on the horses mood; “when they collaborate, follow the instructions and do what they are supposed to it's a good day, otherwise it becomes harder. Travelling has always been her hobby. Because of Rodeo Taylie usually travels all around Utah and sometimes to Las Vegas, Nevada; she can’t go too far because driving with a trailor is hard. Taylie says: “riding and training them as much as possible would be optimal, but because of school she can do what she loves the most only during the weekend”. Her future is yet to be discovered. The only thing Taylie knows is that she’ll never quit her relationship with horses. She's searching for college options that allow her to work with animals, and maybe she’ll end up making his biggest hobby her work.
