Like many of you, I just completed and submitted the form that notifies Trinity that my husband and I will be re-enrolling our son, Justin, at Trinity for the 2018-19 school year. You wouldn’t think that a simple click of the mouse would conjure up a well of emotions; however, I admit I got a lump in my throat, and it wasn’t because I had another year of tuition to pay. No, it was because it struck me that, after seventeen years, next year will be the last one when I’ll wear my Trinity-parent hat.
For all these years, Trinity’s faculty, staff and leadership have walked alongside my family as our children have grown up. I couldn’t be more grateful for coaches that have exhorted my sons to be better men, teachers that have pushed all three to be better thinkers, and leadership that has listened to and counseled Todd and me, when our children were struggling through adolescence.
I know you have many options for educating your children, and I thank you for entrusting them to the community of faith and learning we call Trinity Academy. I personally take your trust in our institution very seriously and commit to doing all I can, so that when the day comes, and you hit your final send notification because your baby is graduating (!), like me, you’ll feel a little lump in your throat and thank God for your years at Trinity Academy.
