ANGOLA - A 1960 Trine University alumnus and his wife will donate $3 million toward efforts to build a new student design center on Trine’s Angola campus.

John and Mary Pellegrino are the donors of Trine’s most recent financial gift.

John Pellegrino, who graduated with a degree in civil engineering, and his wife Mary have made a $1 million gift and plan to complete the pledge by the end of the year.

In appreciation for the gift, a newly proposed facility will be named the John and Mary Pellegrino Engineering Design Center.

“The student design center has long been an essential element of the practical, hands-on education offered to engineering students at Trine University,” said Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine University president. “We are grateful to John and Mary for this significant upgrade to our facilities and equipment, which will benefit Trine students for many years to come.”
