Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund Reports Fundraising Success



The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund (TESF) has reported tremendous success at its Annual Golf Classic & Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Kentucky Derby Tournament. The tournament not only brought together family members, friends and nationwide supporters to participate in two of Taylor’s favorite pastimes—golf and poker—but also raised more than $200,000 for the foundation during this one-day event. Since the inception of the Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund in December 2010, more than $1 million dollars has been raised to support the foundation’s mission. 

The support of corporate partnerships, sponsors and contributors is vital to the success and sustainability of the Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund.  Every sponsorship and donation contribute toward the goal of helping a worthy student experience an independent, college preparatory education at The Out-of-Door Academy's Upper School, when they would not otherwise have the means to attend the private school. 

Currently, the TESF has four alumni and four students attend The Out-of-Door Academy on full, four-year scholarships.
