Opportunity of a Lifetime

My time at Trinity has been the best four years of my life. I have been lucky enough to have many experiences and opportunities that have allowed me to grow and prepare myself for college and the rest of my life. Now, being about halfway through the last quarter of my senior year, all there is to do is close out the year and turn in my best work.

I recently visited the University of Kentucky, where I am attending in the fall, and picked my classes for my first semester. This experience really opened my eyes to how little time I have left at Trinity and has made me want to reflect on my time here.

My teachers at Trinity have gone above and beyond for me throughout my four years. Thanks to them I feel prepared for college and whatever is ahead. They have taught me many skills to use in and out of school. I’m grateful especially for my AP classes that have put me ahead in my college classes and in finishing my degree.

I had classes that I thrived in, and I had some that I struggled in. Two of these classes I debated switching out of. The first class was AP European History with Ethan Morris. I didn’t know if I could keep up with an AP class or if I would even pass the test. Morris helped me to not fall behind and taught me everything I needed to know to succeed. The other class was Coach Owens’ junior English class. This was the hardest class I took at Trinity. Coach pushed me to try my hardest and taught me how to study to pass his class. I also learned many lessons for the future that will be useful.

One of the biggest things I am grateful for from my years at Trinity are my friends. I have had the opportunity to meet and talk to so many different people. I have made memories with my fellow brothers that I will never forget. Even with my freshman year so odd due to COVID, I feel like I have a brother in every student in the class of 2024.

I am incredibly grateful for the experience given to me at Trinity. It’s been three and a half years, seven semesters, 14 quarters, 30 midterms and finals, and at least 660 days of school. If I could go back, I would relive every single one of those days.
