Summer wrap up
Posted on August 8, 2012
Let’s be honest. It can be difficult to say goodbye to summer. Next week, teachers will be meeting, classrooms will be decorated and awaiting students, and parents will be urging their sons and daughters to go to bed a little earlier.
Yet, there is an anticipation of a new year, new classes, new students, and new teachers. One of the new faces you’ll see at Trinity this year is Sue Howard, who joins our staff with fourteen years of experience in a Christian school setting. She will be teaching 11th and 12th grade English, and 10th grade girls’ Bible. She recently expressed her passion for educating teenagers, specifically in a Christian school, saying, “Many biblical life lessons can be learned in my subject area, and I would not be able to share these in a public school.”
Another new faculty member is Lisa Howell, a certified math teacher with six years experience teaching math at the high school level. Lisa desires to use her skills to “raise this generation of youth in their education”. She looks forward to working with students to help them reach their full potential.
While academics are the focus of any school, a well-maintained and well-equipped facility goes a long way in enabling teachers to do their job well. To that end, Jeff Roth joins our staff as Building and Maintenance Supervisor. Not only is he skilled to maintain the building, but he has a background in ministry and a BA in Theology.
As you do your last minute school shopping, make a few more visits to the pool, or just have some family time, remember that the teachers and staff at Trinity are getting excited and ready to welcome the students back. In Isaiah 43:19 it says “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” We look forward to the new things that God will bring forth in the lives of the students, faculty, staff, and families of Trinity Christian School this year.
Here are a few other new things that happened this summer:
Superintendent Ken Howard receives a two-thousand dollar grant on behalf of Trinity Christian School from Park Johnston, BB&T, representing the Weldon Family Foundation. The foundation’s contribution is designated towards VIP bleacher seating for the new athletic field and sports complex.
My Bank! First United Bank & Trust, Sabraton branch, is hosting a show of artwork produced by secondary Trinity Christian School students. As our Partner in Education, the show is one of the many ways My Bank continues to support Trinity. Be sure to stop in during normal banking hours to view the display and say hello to the My Bank staff!
