TRACS STUDENT WINS ACI CONTEST

The Associated Colleges of Illinois granted Christine Pomroy, an education major in Trinity's TRACS To Teach program, one of its four $2500 scholarship awards for winning its Liberal Arts for Leadership Essay Contest. 

"Teachers can be seen as choreographers," Pomroy said. "By teaching and elaborating on their knowledge, they help their students begin a new dance in the story of life. I hope that my teaching will resemble that kind of art."

Focused on the theme Teachers Lead, Leaders Teach, this year's contest challenged students majoring in education to express why teaching is a leadership profession and how their liberal arts education prepared them to be leaders in the classroom. Pomroy's essay was judged one of the best efforts from among 35 competitors from ACI institutions throughout the state.

Pomroy, a resident of Schaumburg, Illinois, received her award at the ACI's 51st 
annual meeting on March 26, 2003 in Chicago. Her essay was published in the commemorative program developed for the meeting, and distributed at the event as well as to a select list of business leaders and policy-makers throughout the state. For the 2002-03 academic year, nine Trinity students have won scholarship funds from the ACI.
