Byron and his wife Audrey, have continued to support the Black Student Union aka Black Scholars United over the years. Their support includes a Byron Warfield-Graham Scholarship and this recently established (1/2019) Emergency Student Support Fund. The Emergency fund’s primary focus is to provide a helping hand for African American students during emergency situations that might interrupt their academic success.
