Gerald Furr Memorial Golf Classic and Fun Run
Gerald Furr Memorial Golf Classic is an annual golf tournament held in memory of retired basketball Coach Gerald Furr and benefits U-High Athletics.
Fun Run is held in conjunction with the golf tournament. This is a K-5th grade event held during PE classes to help raise money for athletics.
Over the past 18 years, the GFMGC has raised over $300,000.00! All money raised from this tournament directly benefits the University High School Athletic Department. Funds have provided for 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.
Grandparent’s and Grand-Friend’s Day is an annual event held to invite grandparents and friends of K-5th grade students to the University Laboratory School to see their grandchildren in their school environment and visit and meet faculty and administration.
Alumni Homecoming Tailgate Event is an annual event held to reunite alumni during U-High’s Homecoming. The event provides a complimentary dinner and children’s entertainment prior to kick-off.
Cubs Alumni Recognition Celebration is an annual event recognizing four alumni: two for the Alumni Hall of Distinction and two others for the Athletic Hall of Fame. Tickets are $75 each. Honorees are selected from nominations submitted by alumni. An anonymous group of their peers makes the final selection.
Senior Crawfish Boil is hosted each May to honor the graduating class. It typically follows the Administration's traditional 'last walk through the U-High hallways'.
Career Day provides students (Juniors and Seniors) with an up-close and personal view of a wide variety of jobs. In addition, it offers alumni who may not normally be active in their alma mater to get involved. As a result, Career Day allows students and alumni alike to take pride in their school and the impact it will have, has had, or is having on their chosen profession.
