  • TROD Goes “Cool” for #5

    Posted February 13, 2015

Fortunately, Lawrenceville alumni and parents are a generous bunch, so five years ago the Student Council, with help from the Alumni Office, introduced a new School tradition – the annual celebration of Lawrenceville’s donors on the day their dollars begin to pay the bills. This year, students marked the fifth anniversary of TROD by adding a new layer of “cool.”
