The State Highway Department has placed a sign at the Letcher County line at Isom honoring retired Letcher High School teacher and coach Danny Taylor of Walters Branch at Isom.
The sign tells motorists that the county is home to Taylor, who is a 2016 inductee into the Lincoln Memorial University Athletic Hall of Fame. Taylor, a 1965 graduate of Letcher High School, earned a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education and biology from LMU in 1969, and a master’s degree in parks and recreation from Morehead State University in 1972. Taylor coached baseball and basketball at Letcher High School for 30 years.
Taylor is married to Evelyn Taylor of Isom. They have four children and nine grandchildren.
