Senior Class Chooses School Verse

The Senior Class gathered at Camp Tekoa to choose the annual school verse
This year we have launched a new tradition at Trinity.  The senior class has come together to choose the Scripture verse that will guide the entire school through the year.

In the past, the Headmaster and a few other leaders were involved in the selection of the school verse, but we got this idea from another school and I am delighted to report that I've just come back from Camp Tekoa in Hendersonville, NC, where I spent last night working with the students to guide them to select this year's verse.

The students worked through a carefully designed process that gave a voice to every one of the forty seniors, and in the end they came together around one verse that they think (and I agree!) captures the Gospel message, reflects Trinity's mission in a clear way, and is relevant to Trinity today.  They began their work in their four advisories and then came together as a whole class to discuss, debate, share, pray, and then choose.  I'm very pleased with what they have done.

It was gratifying to see them engage earnestly on the project, and I look forward to their leadership through the year.

The class will announce their choice to the rest of the school on Monday, August 31, at the Opening Chapel (8:40 am).

The verse will hang in a prominent place in the Gold Gym this year, and then it will take its proper place among the hall of fame of previous verses hanging in the Blue Gym.
