Trinity Entrepreneur Group Recognized
Did you see this mention of Trinity Upper School students winning the regional trophy for the Lt. Governor’s Entrepreneurial Challenge? Kentucky Living magazine recently highlighted the competition and included a picture from the Trinity team, which included Jonathan Tanaka, Preston Crouch, and Zach Kirkendall.
They created an upstart niche marketing company, called Zora, and presented their business plan in front of the Governor, Lt. Governor, and a panel of local Entrepreneur judges last spring. A special thanks goes to parents Mark Tanaka and Chad Crouch for serving as the team’s Business Mentors!

“Two Buck Club” at Upper School
Our Upper School students are no strangers to giving to others. They participate in service projects and give to special offerings throughout the year.
Right now, our “Two Buck Club” is underway, where students bring $2 to Chapel for the next two weeks to support these organizations:
– September 6 – Kentucky Refugee Ministries. We are raising money to purchase school supplies.
– September 13 – Titans for Togo. We would like to raise $600 to send two students to our partner school in Togo. This amount covers the cost of books, uniforms, and fees.
Remind your student to bring $2 (or more!) on these Chapel days.
