Special graduation message from MLB Umpire Fieldin “Cubby” Culbreth

All of us at UMPS CARE Charities are proud to see one of our All-Star College Scholarship recipients – Katherine Atkins – graduate today!

Katherine earned a degree in healthcare management at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, and she did it with the support of a mentorship team from UMPS CARE. Major League Baseball Umpire Fieldin “Cubby” Culbreth and Amy Guccione, wife of MLB Umpire Chris Guccione, provided gift packages, phone calls, lunches and friendship as Katherine navigated her way through college.

Cubby wanted to share a congratulatory message as today is Katherine’s graduation day.

The All-Star College Scholarship Program provides $10,000 in financial support each year, in addition to mentorship from the umpire community to a young adult who was adopted in their teens.

Our scholarship application deadline is May 21, 2021 – if you know of a great candidate for this amazing opportunity, have them APPLY NOW!
