The Kansas City Chiefs announced that they would retire our late friend Terez Paylor’s Arrowhead Stadium press box seat on Friday — which was decreed as “Terez Paylor Day” by Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas. The Chiefs are set to host the Minnesota Vikings in their final preseason game on Friday night.
The Hunt family also donated $10,000 to the Terez Paylor scholarship at Howard University, which also happened to become officially endowed Friday morning.
We’ve reached over $100K for @TerezPaylor’s scholarship at @HowardU. It’s now officially endowed and it will help fund future sports journalists for generations to come! Thank you to everyone who helped us reach this milestone by donating. #AllJuiceTeam pic.twitter.com/TYl96wEq4F— Ebony Reed (@EbonyReed) August 27, 2021
