Faculty and Friends

Faculty & friends played students last week (Jan 27, 2017) in the traditional annual match-up. Most alumni will remember the game being played across Ball Street in "the cage." Of course, the game is now played in the climate-controlled Robert L. and Ann Moody Activity center! I love seeing graduates return to play in the game....even when I can barely recognize them. This year a good group of our graduates happened to be children of our faculty. In the image here, Jackson Gaido, Austin Schwab, Cade Harrington, and Kyle Wheeler are shown with their teammate parents!

alums w 2003 yearbookOn Sunday, January 27, I came across Lauren Balentine, Alex Harrington, and Jordan Raschke (all TES C' 09) discussing fond school memories and looking at a TES 2003 yearbook at Sugar Bean. Jordan came from behind the counter to join in the photo, and Lauren and Alex were supposed to be studying calculus....but I'm proud that Trinity is still on their radar! The girls are in their senior year at Ball Prep! -DCD
