Theater Program Students Benefit from Generosity of Greenville Couple

A couple, who retired to Greenville after challenging professional lives in New York City and Florida, has established an endowed scholarship fund that will assist theatre students at Greenville Technical College (GTC).  Hal Weiss and Lorraine Goldstein moved to Greenville about ten years ago.  Hal retired from a career in forensic accounting and Lorraine from her career in hospital social work. 
 
They have become very active in the Greenville arts community, supporting a number of organizations with their time and gifts.  Their donations to GTC, totaling almost $42,000, have created an endowed scholarship that will assist several theater students.  They hope their gift will have an impact on the students, and the students in turn, will have a positive impact on their community.

Their hopes have begun to be fulfilled by last year's Hal Weiss and Lorraine Goldstein Scholarship recipient, Alex Brady.  Brady wrote, "My life has been transformed and changed thanks to the theater and people like you both!  Thank you so much for giving people like me a chance to show the world what I can accomplish."
