Alumni Spotlight: David Tanous

by Vicki White

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.

David phoned The Universal Technical Institute in Mooresville, NC, during his freshman year in high school. He wanted to apply early for this prestigious automotive repair school. The school told him to call back his senior year, and David did! He was accepted to the school, and in sixteen months, David was a certified auto mechanic. David is now a Master Service Technician, a sign of excellence in the automotive repair world!

Sixteen months after high school graduation, David had a job with Don Jacobs of Lexington making an excellent salary with great benefits. He is still employed there in the auto parts department.

One day, David would like to have his own business in automotive mechanics. He projects this dream will come to fruition in three to five years. He is waiting for his wife, Sarah, to complete her master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis. Her bachelor’s degree is in psychology. David and Sarah have been married for eighteen months, and they attend Tates Creek Presbyterian Church.

I asked David, “How did Trinity help you in preparing you for your profession and for the world?” David smiled his infectious smile and replied, “Trinity showed me I was not cut out for academia, for the college world! School was not easy for me, and I knew the Lord was calling me elsewhere. I had known for many years I wanted to be in auto mechanics.”

David then said what I have heard many of our alumni say: “Trinity gave me a solid foundation in the Word and in the gospel of Jesus Christ. This foundation has helped me to resist worldly temptations and to walk with the Lord.” 

As I left David’s work, my eyes were filled with tears of joy, and I thanked the Lord for this young man. He has grown from that little preschool baby who cried every day for his mama, into this godly man who loves the Lord with all of his heart.  

I am so blessed to have David as my auto mechanic. I may be a bit biased, but he is the best! 


Cheer Clinic for 3rd-6th Grade Girls

Do you have a daughter in 3rd-6th grade who dreams of cheering at Trinity when she gets to the Upper School? Our cheer clinics are a great way for them to get some practice, learn some new skills, and hang out with our Varsity cheer squad!

The Varsity cheerleaders will host this year’s first cheer clinic on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 10:30 am-12:30 pm, in the Lower School gym. The girls will be practicing to cheer for the 5th/6th grade basketball game on Friday, Dec. 15, at 4 pm vs Sayre.

All participants will receive a new “Future Trinity Cheerleader” T-shirt, hair bow, and a healthy snack. The fee for the clinic is $35. Register here.


“The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”

Trinity’s Upper School Drama will present a classic this holiday season: “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” The cast has students from both the Upper and Lower schools. 

This new dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.

The intense action features chases, duels, and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more.

The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur, and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.

Don’t miss this amazing production at Trinity’s Lower School at these show times:

  • 7:30 pm, Thursday, Nov. 30
  • 7:30 pm, Friday, Dec. 1
  • 2:30 pm, Saturday, Dec. 2
  • 7:30 pm, Saturday, Dec. 2

Tickets are available online.


Weekend of Champions!

We had an amazing weekend in sports at Trinity!

In Volleyball, our Varsity team won their second straight State Champion title at Asbury University on Saturday evening. They are in good company with the JV Volleyball team, who recently won their state championship.

 

Our Cross Country teams also enjoyed success over the weekend at their state championship meets! Our Varsity and Elementary girls’ teams won their respective championship titles, and the Elementary boys took second place. 

Congratulations to all of our fall athletes for a fantastic season!

Gathering of the Harvest

As we approach the holiday season, we have a wonderful opportunity to teach our children that it is more blessed to give than to receive.  Out of a thankful heart for the many blessings we receive from the Father, we can (and are commanded to) give to those who are less fortunate than we.

Each year, Trinity Christian Academy has collected food to help support a local ministry that serves those in need. This year’s recipient is once again the Salvation Army, a ministry that has a long history of providing assistance to anyone in need. 

We will be gathering food for the Salvation Army Monday, October 30, through Friday, November 3.  At the Lower School every family will be designated as a Pilgrim or an Indian, and we have a lot of fun competing against one another to see which group wins by bringing in the most items.  All donated items need to be clearly marked with a “P” for Pilgrim and an “I” for Indian so that they can be counted correctly and assigned to the right team. 

Click here to see if your family has been assigned to the Pilgrim or Indian team.

Upper School students are not assigned to teams, but are encouraged to donate food items.

Click here to see a list of food items needed.

To get us off to the right start, all food items brought in on Monday will count DOUBLE points! Let’s give generously with cheerful hearts and to the glory of our Lord!


Etiquette Lunch for 8th graders

Every year, our 8th grade students learn about table manners and etiquette. Then they get to participate in a special lunch to practice their skills! They filled out RSVPs, set their own table, and practiced table manners and conversational etiquette. Here are some photos from this year’s event.
