Dear Trinity Families,


It is with both sorrow and appreciation that I write to inform you that Chloe Knauer will be moving on from Trinity, and from Galveston Island. As she shared with her colleagues in early March, her family is moving to the Texas Hill Country, where she “looks forward to new adventures and opportunities.” Ms. Knauer has worn numerous hats at Trinity since joining the community in 2015; her keen abilities and devotion allowed her to rise through the ranks to her current role as the Director of Advancement and Admission, and her contributions in many areas have elevated and modernized Trinity. The attention to detail and tireless work ethic she brought to the COVID task force helped keep the entire community safe. Perhaps most significantly, Ms. Knauer has raised record amounts of dollars for our Annual Fund, helping to ensure that our faculty and staff receive the resources needed to support the classrooms and our children’s education. She has been instrumental in revolutionizing Trinity’s approach to constituency engagement and has truly grown our mission of philanthropy.


Advancement work in independent schools includes admission and development, important components of every thriving private school. Ms. Knauer’s work and the vision leave Trinity positioned well for the coming years. Moving forward, a plan is in place to ensure a smooth transition for Trinity and our students, which I will be announcing in the next few weeks. Join me in wishing Chloe all the best in her new endeavors; she has had a positive impact on many lives here and she will be missed.


Warm Regards,


Mark Ravelli

Head of School
