Our lives are filled with introductions. As soon as we breathe our first breath, we meet new people and have new experiences. With each additional year of healthy growth and development, our knowledge base broadens and our social circle expands.
Besides being introduced to new concepts in the classroom, Trinity students are given co-curricular opportunities to meet new people and have new experiences. The significance of these events in the life of each child may not be evident at first. Will showing a project at a science fair spark a career path? (Learn more about our students at the Regional Science Fair here.)Will traveling to the state capitol for Youth in Government lead to a future internship? Will the message delivered by a Chapel speaker mark a pivotal point in a student’s relationship with Christ? Only time will tell. Meanwhile, our teachers, coaches, and mentors will continue making the introductions as part of our mission to educate for life.
Senior Pierce Griffith has been named as one of two 2015 recipients of the full-tuition Laut Scholarship from Wheeling Jesuit University.
