Kathryn’s Heart for Trinity

Our family has been blessed to be a part of the Trinity community for over a decade.  Serving in various capacities has only given me a deeper love and appreciation for our unique community of faith and learning.  There is a genuineness throughout the community that is invaluable. The community has been a gift to our entire family!  I recently heard Dr. Bridges describe a bigger goal for our graduates than just merely being employable or accepted into top universities – Trinity aspires for our graduates to also be healthy, fierce, tough, tender, virtuous, inquisitive beautiful souls. It is a joy to be a part of a mission that aspires to shape this kind of graduate.
