We were happily honored to host Pastor and Mrs. Douglas Wilson here at Trinitas Christian School on Monday, November 10, 2008. Pastor Wilson opened the school day with a devotional thought about forgiveness to the student body during our Morning Meeting. At a mid-morning ladies’ tea, Mrs. Nancy Wilson encouraged our mothers, daughters, and grandmothers to exert a Godly feminine influence on their homes. For an afternoon coffee break, Pastor Wilson spoke to our fathers and sons about the masculine influence on the Christian home. Our families were greatly enriched by their thoughts and words of wisdom. During a private staff luncheon, the Wilsons exhorted and encouraged the faculty to keep on about God’s task here at Trinitas. The wonderfully full day concluded with a dessert fellowship attended by the Trinitas Christian School family and area friends, where Pastor Wilson addressed the gathering on the topic, “The Paideia of God.” Pastor and Mrs. Wilson were most gracious and edifying as they unselfishly served our school during their visit, and we are humbly grateful.

On Wednesday, May 30, 2007, the Pensacola News Journal (PNJ) featured Kaleb Trotter on its front page to honor him for attaining the distinction of being named a National Merit Finalist. Troy Moon of the PNJ wrote, “Kaleb Trotter enjoys playing poker with friends. You can bet on the senior at Trinitas Christian School in Pensacola to go far – in life as well [as] in poker. Like any good poker player, he knows how to play his cards. He leaves money out of the equation and plays just for fun and to test his brain. So far, his brain has passed all tests.” One of only 11 National Merit Scholarship finalists in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties and one of 15,000 nationwide, Kaleb was quoted describing classical education, “I love the methodology. You not only learn facts, you learn how to put them together into a coherent form and present them in a way that’s pleasing and beautiful. The way I think about it, my parents have given me the best, and, by the grace of God, I have been given a good mind. So I try to use it in the best possible way.”
The Trinitas family is proud to claim Kaleb Trotter as a graduate of Trinitas Christian School.
