A team that included three Trinity sophomores won the Lieutenant Governor’s Entrepreneurship Challenge (LGEC) at the regional level, and went on to compete against the top teams in the state. They took third place and were awarded $15,000 in scholarships to share. Trinity also received a $1000 check for their success!

Team members are: Preston Crouch, Zach Kirkendall, Jonathan Tanaka, and Jonathan Harrison (homeschooled).

LGEC

The LGEC is a tiered business pitch competition for all Kentucky high school students grades 9-12. It is intended to introduce students to a realistic competitive business environment, as well as promote business ownership and lifelong learning.

At the LGEC Finals, scheduled for April 29 at the University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics in Lexington, the 10 finalist teams will compete for $80,000 in scholarships. The top three teams will split the scholarship funding, which can be used at any post-secondary institution in Kentucky.

The Around the World Gala is THE BIGGEST annual fundraising event for Trinity Christian Academy, but we can’t make it work without your help.  Mark your calendars for 6:00 p.m., Thursday, April 20, at the Carrick House and join us for a night that will take you Around the World! Here are ways to get involved:

  • Sponsorship.  To find out more on how to become a sponsor for the Gala, click here.
  • Silent auction donations.  We are currently gathering items for the Silent Auction. The Silent Auction has a large variety of items that will attract your interest.  Did you like to garden? Consider donating a gardening basket.  Do you own a store?  Arts and Crafts?  Do you have a timeshare you are willing to donate? All items will need to have a contract filled out and dropped off to Diana Clark at the Lower School. 
  • Raffle tickets.  Each family should have received 6 raffle tickets in their mailbox. If each family sells the raffle tickets provided, Trinity will receive $80,000! Thanks for helping make this a huge success!

Attention all Upper School Students and Parents:

Our High School (9th-12th grades) Spring Formal venue and date have been changed due to a scheduling conflict on the part of the original venue. Trinity organizers were not at fault for this conflict, and the problem was just communicated to Trinity in early March. Kudos to the Student Council for quickly making other plans!

We are excited to announce that our new Spring Formal venue is the Lexington Country Club on Tuesday, April 11!  More details to come on menu options. We still plan to have a photographer, dinner, music, and dancing, and we expect to have a grand evening!

We recognize that a midweek dinner and dance is unusual timing for a student event and a weekend evening would be preferred. We exhausted many different options and the decision was made that this venue on this date would give our students the best experience.

Since the formal is now on Tuesday, April 11, all middle school and high school students will be dismissed at 1:00 pm that day.  On Wednesday, April 12, school will begin with Chapel at 9:45 am.

Please note that Friday, April 21, the original date for the formal, will be a regular school day instead of a half day.

Congratulations to French students Allington Bowling, Grace Taylor, Emily Millard, and Becky Cramer who all did an outstanding job participating in the Kentucky World Language Association State Showcase at the University of Kentucky on March 27!

Allington Bowling took 2nd place overall in the Intermediate Level, and Emily Millard won 2nd place in the Novice Level.
