"MAKING WHAT YOU DO MEANINGFUL"--EDUCATIONAL SUMMIT, OCTOBER 27
People might not be aware of the demands upon a teacher today to be accountable for the performance of students. But teachers are. "Teachers know it does not end with teaching content," said Gary Smit, Ed.D., character development trainer and former board of trustees chair. "Really, the goal of education needs to be not only teaching kids to be smart but also good." Find out more information on our Web site at: tcc.trnty.edu/new/archive/100107b/

TRINITY JOYFULLY WELCOMES NEW CHAPLAIN
"The primary focus of the chaplain is to come alongside students with faculty and staff to encourage and equip them to cultivate a deeper and broader imagination for what God has planned for them," said Trinity's new chaplain Dr. Bill Van Groningen. Van Groningen began serving in his new role on September 17, 2007. His personal and professional backgrounds are characterized by a man who has "lived and ministered broadly and deeply," the same practice he hopes to encourage in students as they discover who God created them to be.
