About The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund

Despite Taylor Emmons’ short life, he managed to accomplish more in his 19 years than many people wish for in a lifetime. At The Out-of-Door Academy he excelled in academics and sports, and was voted vice president of his senior class, Homecoming King and student with the most school spirit. Although the hole created by his absence can never be filled, the Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund strives to carry on his spirit and energy by awarding a scholarship to at least one deserving young student each year.
