Trinity Lutheran School in Jefferson City will receive a $500,000 endowment, Principal Ken Hartman announced Friday.
Robert Barrett Laury of Jefferson City gave the money to create the Martha Katelyn Aull Endowment Fund in his sister's name. Aull is a seventh-grader at Trinity.
Hartman said nothing definite has been decided about how to use the money, but under consideration are the following ideas: completing a library and media center, updating technology in the school, assisting the professional development of teachers and creating projects related to the visual and performing arts.
Trinity has 332 students ranging from kindergarten to eighth grade. One family is from Columbia.
