Larry Roberts ’68

You are here

“Coming from a small middle class high school, Trinity was quite an eye-opener. Everything about it was different,” recalls Larry Roberts, ’68. These differenceswere exciting but intimidating. “Trinity provided structure,support and inspiration and over time I realized that I could hold my own, even excel in all aspects of college life – social, academic, athletics.” Inspired by such notable professors as Dr. Mauch, Dr. Bankwitz and Coach Dan Jessee, Roberts’ knowledge and confidence grew, as did the intimacy he shared with his classmates. “I made true friendships, many of which continue to this day.”

A consistent donor to the Trinity Fund, he wanted to do more for his 50th Reunion. Roberts made use of the IRA Rollover provisions to increase his support. “Allotting part of my Required Minimal Distribution from my IRA was a painless way to make a substantial gift to Trinity, not only for this year but for years to come. My gift, along with the very generous gifts of my classmates, is our collective and demonstrable way of saying thank you to Trinity for all that it has done for us over the years, and will ensure that future generations of Trinity students will have an equally wonderful Trinity experience.”

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can transfer a gift directly from your IRA. The transfer may be earmarked toward any specific purpose or to the Trinity Fund, which supports the highest priorities of the College. “Trinity needs all of us to maintain the high quality of education that it provides,” notes Roberts. “The College provided us with a bedrock experience that has enabled us to build creative, meaningful, productive and significant lives for ourselves and for our families. Our giving to Trinity will sustain the high quality educational experience that we all enjoyed so many years ago.”
