CAMPUS NEWS

GRADUATES READY TO BEGIN NEW JOURNEY OF SUCCESS

Before Trinity's graduating class of 2005 received their degrees and certificates at commencement May 21, keynote speaker Dr. Tim Stuart reminded his audience in the Ozinga Chapel of what true success is. "Success has nothing to do with what you have achieved in life and everything to do with what you contribute," said Stuart, principal of Rehoboth Christian School in Rehoboth, New Mexico. "Our society will tell you that you are successful because you have a good education, a good job, and lots of money.  The world, even our Christian world, wants you to believe that success is all about acquisition."
