Taylor, a professor in U.Va.’s Curry School of Education and director of the University’s Summer Session, received the Raven Faculty Award. The Raven Society, which is the oldest of the University’s honorary societies, founded the award in 1933 in recognition of excellence in service and contributions to U.Va. The Raven Award is the highest honor the Society bestows.

Taylor also received the Arthur F. Stocker Jr. Faculty Award. The award is given annually by the U.Va. chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honorary society, for which Taylor serves as faculty secretary.

In addition, he received the U.Va. Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa’s Distinguished Kappan Award for 1999. According to the citation, the award was given to Taylor for "being an outstanding educator who embodies the highest ethical and professional ideals."

Taylor received the awards at the organizations’ banquets in late spring.
