Dr. Culbreath has been awarded the Excellence in Educational Leadership Award by the University Council for Educational Administration and is the recipient of the Albany Rotary Club Four-Way Test Award. Recently, the Georgia Association of Education Leaders (GAEL) awarded him the H.M. Fullbright Distinguished Service Award at its 2007 summer conference. Gamma Omicron Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. named Culbreath Alpha Man of the Year for 2007 and he is the recipient of the Ed Freeman Leadership Award from Leadership Albany, Inc.

A native of Monroe, Georgia, Dr. Culbreath received his bachelor of arts degree in French from Albany State University, his master’s degree in Administration and Supervision from Georgia State University, and his Doctor of Education degree from the University of Georgia.
