STUDENTS CELEBRATE "FREE"
the last three weeks of the academic year, Trinity students and their families
do not have to pay for their education.
Trinity commemorated Tuition-Free
Day by hosting an afternoon picnic and games on the Commons April 26. That
is the date in the College's fiscal year when tuition income no longer
meets operating expenses. From now through June 30, donations to the Trinity
Fund will cover those costs.
"We've been blessed by a
fantastic network of loyal friends and supporters," said Marv Eylander
'86, director of the Trinity Fund. "They have been generous in extending
their prayers and financial support to the College, and we wanted to show
the students that there are people helping them receive a quality Christian
education. It's important that the students understand the value of our
donors' contributions to Trinity's mission."
The development office furnished
an oversized thank-you card for the students to sign during the festivities.
Trinity's jazz band provided music in the tent while the athletically inclined
tested their skill at a speed pitch game.
Gifts to the Trinity Fund
help provide and enhance the resources needed to maintain a high quality
of education. The College uses donations to pay for campus maintenance,
capital improvements, and equipment purchases.
