Ms. Linda R. Hill Scholarship Fund


The family of Ms. Linda Hill, an assistant professor

of English at Claflin who passed away in April 2019,

made a $350,000 gift to the University to establish an endowment

to support student scholarships. The gift is the largest from any

current or former member of Claflin’s faculty or staff. 

The check presentation was made on Monday, November 16, 2020,

on the second floor of the Grace Thomas 

Kennedy Business and Communications Building near the 

Writing Center where Hill helped students develop their writing skills. 

The Writing Center was dedicated in her honor during the presentation 

and will now bear her name. “You cannot replace someone like Ms. Hill 

who gave Claflin 46 years of outstanding service,” said Claflin President

Dr. Dwaun Warmack.  “Her work was a labor of love and you can

tell that she really loved Claflin by this generous gift.”
