Around the Lake

When Trude Heller celebrated her 95th birthday on the Furman campus June 19, the Younts Center was filled with family and friends who offered their congratulations. Greenville Mayor Knox White and former South Carolina Lt. Gov. Nick Theodore were among those in attendance, as was Furman first gentleman Charles Davis (right). Trude is the widow of Max Heller, who was a member of the Furman Board of Trustees and was instrumental in the transformation of downtown Greenville when he served as the city’s mayor. The Heller Service Corps is named in honor of Max and Trude Heller. (Photo by Jeremy Fleming)
