CORAL GABLES, Fla. – A one-time University of Miami running back has donated $1.5 million to the school, the largest gift made to the Hurricanes from one of its former athletes.
The gift from T. Kendall "Ken" Hunt will fund a full scholarship in perpetuity to a running back on the football team.
Hunt earned a football letter from Miami in 1962, but his playing career was cut short when he was accidentally shot above his left ankle at a sport-shooting range. The school honored his scholarship through his graduation from Miami and Hunt is now Chairman and CEO of VASCO Data Security International.
Hunt says, "I guess you could say that I have been successful in business. Now, I give back."
