Our baseball Knights rode to regionals in style where they beat the East Hill Eagles 13-6 in round 1. With Hayden Hill starting at pitcher and Jimmy Hunter in relief, the Knights put together a solid game pitching, fielding, and batting. They pulled away from the Eagles in the late innings for the win.
The Junior and Senior Classes journeyed with a group of faculty and parents to Washington, D.C. for the annual Trinitas Aesthetics Trip this past weekend. The group of forty-two visited the Capitol Building, Holocaust Museum, White House, National Museum of Art, and Smithsonian, just to name a few. Enjoying a dinner cruise on the mighty Potomac River and seeing Anna Kikko Meyers perform with the National Symphony Orchestra were highlights. Part of the Junior and Senior curriculum at Trinitas, the trip allows students to see and experience many of the art and architecture studied in their Traditio classes.
Trinitas Christian School Board of Governors has promoted Mr. Ron Gilley to Headmaster following the departure of Mr. Kenneth Trotter, the founding Head of School. Mr. Gilley will assume his new position effective July 1, 2016.
A long-time member of the Trinitas family, Mr. Gilley has two sons who currently attend Trinitas and has been married to his wife, Janice, for over twenty years. He has spent the last nine years as a voting or ex-officio member of the Board. He started and then managed the operations of Vibracheck, a successful archery manufacturing business, for fourteen years. After selling the business to the world’s largest archery company, Precision Shooting Equipment, Inc., he joined the Trinitas staff as fifth grade teacher and then lead teacher of the Grammar School. Mr. Gilley has a degree in English from the University of West Florida.
We are honored that Mr. Gilley has accepted this new responsibility and excited about the future of our school under his direction.
