6.<strong>TRADITION</strong>.WINTER2006 7.<strong>TRADITION</strong>.WINTER2006 bridging the generations the new alumni leadership here is a new energy at Trinity High School, and our alumni have noticed the difference. Hundreds of Marymount and TTrinity students are reconnecting with their alma mater, and it’s just the beginning. The retirement of Patrick Riley as director of alumni relations led to the creation of Trinity’s new alumni board. Comprised of faculty and staff members, who happen to also be alums of the school, the board has been busy planning a slate of year-round special events. Trinity kicked off the fall football season at our new home stadium in Bedford, and what better way to welcome back our alumni! Our faculty and staff marveled at seeing some of our favorite students return to help us celebrate this new chapter in Trinity athletics. We loved seeing you! For the first time in years, Homecoming 2005 was truly a homecoming for hundreds of alums, who joined us in celebrating the 1980 state football championship. A mixer the Friday before at the Winking Lizard in Independence attracted alums from the 80s, 90s and today, who met and mingled during a night of friendship and camaraderie. The next afternoon, alums gathered for a cookout at the stadium and then took their seats to watch the Trojans battle it out against Holy Name. The mixer was such a popular event that another one was scheduled for November. Breakfast with Santa also attracted a large crowd, with old friends and new faces gathering to celebrate the holidays with their little ones. Be sure to mark you calendars for our upcoming young alumni happy hour, Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, and the Out of the Blue Benefit, all slated for spring 2006! “A few people asked me if I had gone to any of the Alumni events,” said Stacey Wolfe ‘89. “When I ask ‘Why didn’t you go?’ the most common answer is, ‘Well, I didn’t know if anyone I went to school with would be there; I wasn’t sure if I’d know anyone. “I’m fortunate to have a great group of friends who have continued a friendship throughout these years since graduating from high school,” Wolfe said. “I couldn’t imagine my life without them. When people ask me or say to me, ‘Wow, all of you still keep in touch?’ or ‘You guys still talk?’. It makes me very proud to say yes, and then I realize how lucky I am.” Thanks to our work with Harris Connect, our alumni database is now up to date. Alums can expect email invitations and news on upcoming events, delivered right to their inboxes. Make sure to check out our website at www.ths.org for a listing of alumni events! We are even posting information on the popular reunion site Classmates.com. Not online? Not to worry, you’ll still receive Trinity news the old-fashioned way.
