This is only the beginning of an exciting new year where we tell the story of our TES alumni and why Trinity Episcopal School is the best foundation to set your children up for success in all facets of life. We want to thank our Development Committee, Board of Trustees, and AWESOME faculty and staff for helping launch this new campaign and we hope you will wholeheartedly embrace our goal of raising $125,000 thousand dollars by the end of our fiscal year in 2022. Also big thank you to Mod Coffee and Trinity parent, Holly Richardson, for sponsoring this morning's drop-off event. What a great way to start the day, enjoy your weekend!

FACULTY & STAFF SPOTLIGHT
Meet Ron Cordero
We are delighted to introduce you to our Director of Facilities & Maintenance, Mr. Ron Cordero. Mr. Cordero and his family left the Windy City of Chicago and relocated to Galveston seven years ago. He met his college sweetheart, Yvette, and married her upon graduating. They started a family that now includes two beautiful grandsons. His life scripture has been Matthew 6:33 “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” To his colleagues, he would say that every time he has wholeheartedly put the above scripture into practice, God has been faithful and true to bless beyond anything he could ever have deserved. He adds that it’s a high honor partnering with everyone of you as we guide this next generation into the future. We couldn't do anything we do without you, Mr. Ron Cordero, and we thank you for your heart of service!
