Taylor, who was a member of the ANC Foundation Board of Governors and served as chairman, was instrumental in the establishment of the tournament. Following his death, the name of the tournament was changed to honor him for the work he did and support he gave toward education.

This year's tournament, a three-person scramble, is scheduled for Tuesday, June 9, at the Big Lake Country Club in Manila. The entry fee is $90 per team excluding cart rentals, and lunch will be provided. Major tournament sponsors are Centurytel, Bigg Butts BBQ, First National Bank, Heritage Bank, Liberty Bank, SouthBank, Chapter AC PEO, and Janet, Mike and Jon Taylor. Anyone interested in playing in the tournament, being a tournament sponsor, or sposoring a tee-box can contact Rachel Gifford, ANC dean for development, at 838-2902.
