Judy Gupton began her career as University of Memphis Tiger Scholarship Fund Coordinator in November 2004.
Because of having been a small business owner for Executive Chef Catering for more than 20 years, Judy brings years of customer service, event planning and communication skills to the Tiger Scholarship Fund Department. Since her arrival she has initiated fundraising events for all levels of Tiger supporters, coordinated pre-football, baseball, basketball & soccer dinners and special events.
Her Memphis "roots" have proven to be quite an asset for the Athletic Scholarship Fund. A broad base of business and social contacts has proven invaluable in her efforts to enhance private and corporate support for the Tiger Scholarship Fund.
Judy has served two terms as a board member for several organizations in the Memphis Area to include the Advisory Board of the Memphis Food Bank, Foundation Board of the Memphis Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce.
