New Season for Senior Academy of Learning at Trinity

“The SALT program has been truly a ‘senior academy’ for our household,” said Rev. Robert Jipping, a participant in Trinity’s Senior Academy of Learning at Trinity. “The informed leaders have helped my wife Ann and me to look deeper at a current event and have guided us in our hobbies. We have experienced warm fellowship with like-minded seniors.”

The Jippings are representative of many friends of the College who are 55 and older and enjoy learning more about subjects relevant to their lives through the SALT classes.

“The SALT program has been truly a ‘senior academy’ for our household.”
