Susan M. Hunter Scholarship

The Susan M. Hunter Correctional Scholarship is named in honor of Susan M. Hunter, former Director of the Prisons Division at the National Institute of Corrections, as a lasting tribute to her commitment to the field of corrections.   
Susan passed away in 2004 from breast cancer.  ASCA’s Past Presidents’ Committee had been working toward a scholarship program for children of correctional staff. In the wake of her death, ASCA grieved the loss of Susan, and the Committee made a logical decision to name the scholarship program after Susan, who had embodied the ideals of an educated and enlightened correctional workforce. Her life’s work continues in our memory of what she held dear, which is now expressed in our profession with contributions to deserving students whose parents labor in our Association's chosen field.
