The Charleston Southern University family was saddened by the recent death of former trustee and longtime CSU supporter Lloyd E. Sineath.
Sineath, a retired attorney from Hanahan, served three terms on the University’s Board of Trustees (1985-89, 1991-95 and 1997-2001). He was also an active member of the Board of Visitors, a network of leaders who provide assistance to the University in the areas of scholarships, planning, promoting and resource development.
Sineath and his wife, Peggy, established the Lisa Sineath Nursing Endowed Scholarship, in memory of their beloved daughter, Lisa, and have been staunch supporters of the College of Nursing and Allied Health.
“Lloyd and Peggy have supported Charleston Southern University for a long time," said CSU President Jairy C. Hunter Jr. "They were with us during all the years of growth and expansion at the University and have been faithful friends.
“We appreciate the leadership and guidance Lloyd exhibited on our Board of Trustees, and his steadfast support will live on through the students who benefit from the Lisa Sineath Nursing Endowed Scholarship.”
Sineath was awarded an honorary doctor of laws by the University in 1996. In addition to his service on the Board of Trustees and Board of Visitors, he was a life member of the President’s Club.
