David Cassidy Memorial Athletic Training Scholarship Fund

For his years of devotion to the UCF Athletic Training Program

 Help support a scholarship fund in David Cassidy’s name.

I understand that my gift will be put towards endowment of this fund should the overall amount of contributions received reach or exceed the minimum endowment level of $25,000.

David Cassidy served as a beloved instructor and mentor in the UCF Athletic Training Program for many years, while concurrently working with sports medicine and orthopedic organizations throughout Central Florida. His love of the sports medicine field and his outgoing and inclusive personality made him a mentor to many students over his 20 years as a UCF professor.

A dedicated advocate for women in sports, David helped all students achieve their greatest potential. A clinician with a servant’s heart, David’s infamous medical bag was always available day and night. From a weekend warrior to an elite competitor, he served athletes, family, friends, and neighbors ranging in age from 7 to 97.

When David passed in 2019, he left an indelible legacy through his cherished family: daughters Katie and Caroline, and wife Sindy, and the family of students, friends, and community members that he helped personally and professionally.

For his years of devotion to the field of athletic training and his teaching and mentorship at UCF, a memorial scholarship has been established in his honor by his loving family and his mentee, Dr. Kristen Schellhase. Donations to this fund will help reach the endowment level, securing at least one UCF Athletic Training student will receive a $1,000 scholarship annually. Your donation will help create a legacy of support for generations of future athletic trainers.

A gift of any size would be meaningful to Dave’s legacy of advocacy and support for future athletic trainers.

Monetary gifts are not the only way to be involved. If you have a story or picture of David, please share using the submission button below. David lives on in the hearts of all of us and we are thrilled to share in your memories of him.

Any amount is appreciated, and there are two easy ways to support.

I understand that my gift will be put towards endowment of this fund should the overall amount of contributions received reach or exceed the minimum endowment level of $25,000.
