It was a long day – for all of us. Members of the Board of Trustees met at Trinity for a Board Retreat from noon – 5:00PM with the Leadership Team. Together we listened to current trends and potential shifts in schools from Dr. Jeff Jackson, Georgia Independent School Association President, and then broke into teams to identify what Trinity might need and would look like in 8 years. What struck me about this afternoon’s work was the passion, love, and commitment of this group of Trustees for Trinity School. Few of these folks will have children at the school in 8 years and some have graduates who are adults. Still, they labored, discussed, and forecasted the future of our school. Their comments were born of a desire to create pathways for future generations of students to experience the school that has been and the school that is now.
Each month Board members meet to serve in committees who work on behalf of Trinity School. They share expertise from their respective fields and listen to those of us whose roles are to tend to the daily work of a school. The commitment of their time and talents is humbling.
As I prepare to write my January Board update, I am grateful for this group of dedicated individuals whose primary responsibilities are outside the realm of the classroom, yet they intentionally lean into the present and stretch ahead to the future for Trinity children. Thank you, Trustees, for the gift of your time and expertise. Thank you even more for your commitment and passion for this great school.
