One of my sweetest memories of David Tanous is when he was a four-year-old preschooler, sitting in my office, crying for his mother. When he continued to cry inconsolably in my arms, I phoned his mom and told her, “David just needs some mommy time.” She came to school and picked him up, and he was a happy camper! It is hard to believe that was over twenty years ago.
David graduated from Trinity in 2010. He is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Eddie (Trevor) Tanous. As early as the 5th grade, David knew he wanted to pursue the profession of automotive mechanics. At the age of ten, he received a gasoline remote control car as a gift. He took the car apart and put it back together again many, many times. When the car would not run properly, David was able to locate the problem and fix it. He knew at this young age that he wanted to be a mechanic and work with his hands.
I remember well the day I first met the Waters sisters, Anna Ruth and Grace. Anna Ruth was entering the second grade at Trinity, and Grace was entering the third grade. They were such well-behaved, beautiful, little girls! I was thrilled to welcome the Waters family to Trinity!
It has been a joy to watch these sisters grow in grace and knowledge through the years. They have a hunger for learning and a longing to walk daily with their Savior. The Lord is doing great things in these young ladies’ lives!
