Tay Anderson

Former Candidate for Denver School Board District 4
Denver Public Schools

Auontai (Tay) Anderson is the former Student Body President of Manual High School, having served three consecutive terms. He also served as Chair of the Colorado High School Democrats and he is the former State Central Committeeman for HD9. Tay has been passionate about his education since he walked through the doors of Manual High School. He started his high school journey at the same time as the new principal Nick Dawkins, and soon discovered that they shared like-minded visions about where they wanted the school to go. Together, Tay and Principal Dawkins worked to ensure Manual High’s success in every way possible. Tay dedicates his time to the students of Denver Public Schools because he knows that every student is bigger than the narrative told about them. Giving students the opportunity to have experiences that could foster their potential became a priority for Tay.
