Lawrenceville School Trustee Supports International Opportunities With $5 million Gift
Lawrenceville trustee Judith-Ann Corrente and her husband Willem Kooyker have created a $5 million endowment to support study and service abroad opportunities for students at The Lawrenceville School.
The gift solidifies the school’s commitment to making international experiences and travel part of each student’s education regardless of a student’s financial resources. “The Corrente Endowment for International Travel will move the school closer to achieving that goal.” (The Lawrenceville School Announces The Corrente Endowment for International Travel, The Lawrenceville School)
Lawrenceville School headmaster Liz Duffy stated in a school press release:
“Over the past few years, students have studied tropical ecology in Peru, walked France’s World War I battlegrounds, performed with a choir in Russia, built homes and restored coral reefs in the Dominican Republic, and learned drumming and dancing in Ghana…These journeys have had a ripple effect on the campus, with students and faculty sharing their overseas experiences, both in and out of class. The Corrente Endowment for International Travel will now allow Lawrenceville to make such valuable experiences available to even more students.” (The Lawrenceville School)
Corrente and Kooyker are parents of two Lawrenceville alumni.
