Families of John Thomas Ring, John William Neal Jr., Gift Trinity College In Son's Honor, May 31, 1919

From The Daily Times, Wilson, N.C., May 31, 1919

Two Gifts to Trinity College

Members of his family at Kernersville, N.C., have established an endowed scholarship at Trinity College in honor of John Thomas Ring of the class of ’16, who was killed in action in France.
Many Trinity students will remember John Ring, the lovable, bright young boys, perhaps the youngest member of his class, and it will give them pleasure to know that his memory is thus to be perpetuated at his Alma Mater.

Dr. J.W. Neal of Monroe, N.C., has established a loan fund in memory of his son, John William Neal Jr., who died a few weeks ago. Young Neal was in the Students Army Training Corps till the end of the war and afterwards a member of the present Freshman class, and while he had been a member of the college community for only a short time was respected and very much liked by his college mates.
Former students of college will recall his two brothers, Doctors Paul and Kemp Neal, who have since leaving here taken their medical degrees and like their youngest brother were both in the wartime service of their country.
