Trinity Collegiate gets a $274,000 donation
Trinity Collegiate School has announced one of the largest single financial gifts in the school’s history, $274,466. During its 25th anniversary year, Trinity has been honored by the bequest from the estate of Dr. Genie Lee. Lee’s gift will bolster the school’s financial reserves, strengthening Trinity Collegiate School’s mission to educate and prepare its students for productive lives within a global society. “We are inspired and truly grateful for this extraordinary gift,” stated William Naso, chairman of the Trinity Board of Trustees. “Dr. Lee’s generosity will be long remembered and will enable Trinity Collegiate to sustain its academic excellence and continue as one of South Carolina’s premier college preparatory school for years to come.” Lee graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina with doctorates in both dentistry and medicine. She practiced radiology in Florence until her death in 2017. Her passion for education and her generosity were well known. Trinity plans to honor Lee’s legacy with the construction of a large open-air outdoors classroom to be positioned in the central student quad adjacent to a planned new academic building, a part of a recently announced $4 million campus expansion project.
