Some Good News! 

We celebrated the best good news in history last weekend as we gazed into Jesus’ empty tomb on Easter morning and remembered that death is defeated, our sins are forgiven, and indeed he is making all things new. We are reminded of God’s abundant provision for us here on earth as well when we look outside at spring in bloom and hear of God’s good gifts to his people. Let’s rejoice together at news of college acceptances, engagements, and a baby on the way.

College Acceptances

A few of this spring’s college acceptances for the Class of 2020 include Brooke Williams at the California Institute of Technology as a member of their swim team, Hollis Bannister as a James Monroe Scholar at the College of William & Mary, Luke Powers as an Echols Scholar at the University of Virginia, and Joan Gibson’s 4-year Navy ROTC scholarship at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Trinity alumni are also looking toward the future with joy as they celebrate recent engagements. High school sweethearts Henry Kesting and Perry Mullins, both TCS Class of 2016, became engaged last month, joining Trinity classmate Ben Christenson as he and fiancée Jessica Kuniholm, TCS Class of 2013, look forward to their wedding this summer. Trinity Class of 2010 grad Christina Clenance is also recently engaged and looking forward to marrying fiancé Charlito Iwuagwu later this year. 

Future Gryphon

The Trinity community also gives thanks for the joyful news that IT Manager Graham Crook and his wife Faith are expecting a baby, their third child, in the fall.
