Taylor Porter was a proud "hole sponsor" of the University Laboratory School Foundation's 2017 Gerald Furr Memorial Golf Classic. This annual golf tournament, held in memory of retired basketball Coach Gerald Furr, began in 1995 and benefits U-High Athletics.
The Gerald Furr Memorial Golf Classic is presented by The Foust Group and has raised more than $360,000 to fund items such as the new scoreboard at the Cub Complex, an athletic training trailer, Boys and Girls Golf, travel for the State Swimming and Cross Country teams, new uniforms for Boys and Girls Soccer, Boys Basketball, and weight room renovations.
Founded in 1998 by a small group of parents, the University Laboratory School Foundation's (ULSF) role has expanded from funding limited educational enhancements, to implementing critical educational programs and facilitating campus renovations and expansions. The ULSF is a development program which exists within the LSU Foundation for the exclusive benefit of the University Laboratory School. The development program coordinates philanthropic activities of the entire Laboratory School community to further enhance the educational environment of the University Laboratory School.
