[COLUMBIA, S.C., May 9, 2011] – Collins & Lacy P.C. is pleased to announce Aisha Grant Taylor has been appointed to the Executive Committee of The Frye Foundation.
The Frye Foundation, founded by University of South Carolina Track and Field Head Coach Curtis Frye, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people and families that deal with diabetes and mental illnesses, as well as other charitable causes. The foundation will support the American Diabetes Association, the National Alliance on Mental Illness – Moore County, and the Mental Health America of South Carolina.
“There’s nothing more frustrating than watching your loved ones suffer and knowing that it will continue unless there are cures for these illnesses, or at least better treatments,” said Coach Curtis Frye. “We hope to play at least a small part in supporting the scientists who are doing this essential research.”
“I am honored and humbled to be a part of an organization that positively impacts the public in two ways. This organization not only focuses on physical and mental health, but also generously donates scholarships to area students in South and North Carolina,” said Taylor.
Taylor is a senior associate with Collins & Lacy practicing in workers’ compensation and employment law. She received her Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law. Taylor is a member of the South Carolina Defense Trial Attorneys’ Association (SCDTAA), of which she is on the Workers’ Compensation Committee, and the South Carolina Self Insurers Association. Taylor was captain of the University of South Carolina 2002 National Championship Women’s Track and Field Team.
