Presenting the 2nd Graduating Class of Jay Uiberall Scholars

The second graduating class of the Jay Uiberall Scholars program is off to great places! Fifteen scholars selected by REACH Memphis completed a program to enhance their communication skills in preparation for college. The students worked with mentors, participated in mock interviews, learned proper etiquette, and prepared their resumes and college essays over the course of 10 Saturdays. 

The goal of the program is to prepare students for college life beyond the reading, writing and arithmetic they study in school. The opportunities available to our scholars are made possible by the generous supporters of the Jay Uiberall Legacy Fund.

JUCA Students Win Big at the 2016 National ProStart Invitational®

Jay Uiberall Culinary Academy (JUCA) students traveled to Nashville to compete in the ProStart Invitational and took home third place in the Business Management competition—along with the $40,000 in scholarships that came with it! The teammates will use their scholarships for college this fall. Team coach Aryen Moore-Alston was very happy with the results. "We are thrilled, excited and every other adjective used to describe enthusiastic," Moore-Alston said. "This was our first time competing, and we were proud to represent Memphis."
