Three graduating seniors from North and South Carolina high schools will receive Trinity Scholarships from Duke University. Each of these scholarships is valued at more than $250,000 over four years and covers most of the costs of attending Duke.
These scholarships are awarded on a rotating basis to some of the most gifted students residing within specific geographic areas of the two Carolinas.
This year's scholarships were awarded to:
-- Benjamin Chien Liu, of Florence, S.C., who received the William M. Gregg Trinity Scholarship. Liu is a graduate of Wilson High School in Florence, and son of Lucia Huang and David Liu.
-- Alicia Caroline Reed of Greenville, N.C., who received the Roy O. Rodwell Trinity Scholarship. Reed is a graduate of J.H. Rose High School in Greenville, and daughter of Carolyn and John Reed;
-- Catherine Tebbs York of High Point, N.C., who received the John C. and Marsha B. Slane Trinity Scholarship. York is a graduate of Westchester Country Day School in High Point, and daughter of Caren and Greg York;
With the support of North and South Carolinian alumni, Duke created the Trinity Scholarships to honor the university's origins as Trinity College in Randolph County, N.C.
