Tayler Michelle Gray is a 19-year-old graduate of Parkland High School in Allentown, Pennsylvania, who walked out of her graduation immediately after she received her diploma. It wasn't a protest or a statement, but rather a sensible move by a woman who already works and wants to maximize time with her family.


Gray entered her high school’s online program to complete her degree while she simultaneously attended Lehigh Career and Technical Institute to become a nursing assistant. This spring, she started working at a senior rehabilitation home. Her ultimate goal is to transfer to a university to study sonography.
