Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation establishes scholarship in honor of Darryl Hunt; money will go toward people convicted of crimes who are seeking higher education


Darryl Hunt, exonerated of murder in 2004, spent his years of freedom advocating for reforms in the criminal justice system and helping ex-offenders find their footing in the world.

Now, a year after he died, the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation is hoping a $100,000 endowed scholarship fund will go toward continuing Hunt’s work.

The Darryl Hunt Memorial Scholarship will be housed at the Winston-Salem Foundation. Starting in 2018, the fund will award a $1,000 scholarship to a Forsyth County resident who has been convicted of a crime and has served jail or prison time. The money will defray tuition and other fees for recipients attending an accredited vocational or technical school, community college or a college or university. Those who receive the scholarship can use the money to pursue a certificate, diploma or degree. They can even attend law school.
