Lynn Durham of Midland, Texas has given $100,000 to the Wake Forest University Divinity School to be used for scholarships.
The scholarships have been named in honor of Durham and his late wife, Fredda Durham. Beginning in the fall of 2001, they will be given to students who are preparing for pastoral ministry or missionary work.
Lynn Durham graduated from the Wake Forest School of Law in 1938. Since then, he has enjoyed a successful business career in oil and ranching, and the legal profession. He said he created the Lynn and Fredda Durham Scholarship to support students who plan to spend their lives helping others through ministerial work.
The Divinity School at Wake Forest began its second year this fall. The new class has 28 full-time students. Fourteen students are men and 14 are women. There were 24 people in the founding class, five men and 19 women.
