Twins to take separate paths

Staff writer

A pair of Marion sisters often called “the May twins” will blaze separate paths come late summer after each received a $1,000 scholarship from St. Luke Auxiliary last week to help with the cost of the study.

Paige May is headed to Kansas State University to study clinical laboratory science.

“I’d like to work in a hospital laboratory and gain some experience, then hopefully become a lab supervisor after I’ve got a few years under my belt,” she said.

Taylor May is headed to Emporia State University to study nursing.

“I want to work in maternal/newborn or labor and delivery nursing,” she said.

Taylor said the longest the two had been away from each other was a week. Heading separate directions will be an adjustment, she admits.

“It’s going to be really tough,” Taylor said. “She’s been my best friend since I was little tiny.”

Paige will be living in a Manhattan house owned by their uncle, so Taylor is confident she’ll be able to visit as often as her schedule allows.

“We’re excited to kind of get to be on our own instead of being ‘the May twins,’” Paige said. “We’re kind of embracing the change and looking forward to moving forward.”

They are the daughters of Jason and Denise May.
