Trinity builds men of faith, character

Stan Turnier
Trinity High School

Trinity was the school I dreamed of attending ever since I was a little kid. I was a Trinity fan for as long as I could remember, and I could envision getting involved in the brotherhood.

I remember always attending sporting events with my friends and family. I looked up to the guys out there on the field and court even though I had no clue who they were. I knew from that point on that I wanted to be a role model for future Shamrocks, just as those guys were to me.

I wanted to be one of those guys whom kids would look up to.

When the time came and I started freshman year, I had no idea what to think and I was in a lost state of mind. Being able to walk in the shoes of a Trinity student is something many people do not get to experience. Having the opportunity to attend Trinity has been a huge privilege and one I will cherish for a lifetime.

My experience at Trinity has been filled with memories that will stay with me for years. Often times when you hear of Trinity, you may hear the slogans “Be GreaT” or “Brothers for Life,” but you aren’t really sure why that is or what they mean.

The resources Trinity offers you are second to none, which enables you to “Be GreaT.” Everyone who is a part of the school wants to see you succeed and develop into a well-rounded individual who is a man of faith and character.

The idea of building men of faith and men of character is taught daily through prayer, effort and compassion. As a Trinity student I can say all of the Trinity community is there for you at all times, whether to praise you or remind you of your goals.

From your brothers who surround you to the teachers and staff, everyone wants nothing but the best for you in all aspects and they will do whatever it takes to help you reach it. The saying “Brothers for Life” has a meaning like no other. The bond that is formed with your brothers you could not ask for anywhere else. From the student sections to the fun-filled House competitions to the atmosphere in the classroom — you are continually building a bond with the Trinity Family.

Trinity has helped me in many different ways over my four years. From the first day of freshman year when I was walking into the lunch room until now, Trinity has done nothing but turn me into a well-rounded man as well as a better overall student.

Trinity has given me the tools to prepare me not only for college but also my future. You are pushed to be your best each day and that is expected. The time and effort the faculty and staff put into each student so that each one can become the best they can be is surreal and appreciated.

The many people who are a part of Trinity High School give you the things you need to succeed, but the rest is up to you.

I hope many other young men will get to experience what the life of a Trinity student is like firsthand just as I did. I can say my decision to attend Trinity High School was truly one of the best decisions of my life.
