Taylor Pousson, a 2010 graduate of Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School just finished his freshman year at the University of Texas at Austin. He was recently appointed to the university’s student government executive branch as the associate director of appropriations for the 2011-2012 school year.

He will coordinate and oversee distribution of approximately $20,000 throughout the year to different student organizations at UT.

Taylor was appointed to the position by the student body president and was then approved by the student government’s legislative assembly.

This past year, Taylor served in the student government’s internship program for freshmen, the Longhorn Legislative Aide program, where he was one of 18 students chosen from the freshman class at UT for membership in the program.

Taylor is the son of Ray and Melissa Pousson and the grandson of Ruth and the late Eugene Pousson, Kenneth and Mary Ballard, and Bill and Joyce Millar.
