Three Students From the Carolinas to Receive Trinity Scholarships

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.
