Student Stories: Darryl Cunningham

Darryl Cunningham, Morris College

Darryl Cunningham is a junior at Morris College, majoring in elementary education. A focused and spiritually centered young man, Darryl has his own life slogan, “Go Higher: Be Greater.” He is determined to become a teacher and is already preparing himself through his membership in the “Call Me Mister” program, which fosters male teachers to serve in the South Carolina school system. He maintains a 3.6 GPA and is in the college’s honors program.

But with all his talent and work, Darryl faced a serious challenge paying for college. With the help of UNCF’s loyal donors, he received a scholarship that reduced the financial burden for him and for his family. He sends his thanks for your generous support and promises to excel and be a leader who knows the way, shows the way and goes the way.
