CELEBRATION OF CULTURES
The fourth annual Celebration of Cultures in September provided an opportunity for students to become acquainted with Trinity's diverse community.
"This is a great way to kick off the year," said Caitlin Fillmore '09 of Hollis, Maine, student member of the College's Ethnic Diversity Committee. "It shows that Trinity appreciates the uniqueness of its students. We're all different, but we're all made for God's purpose."
Students, faculty, and staff enjoyed ethnic cuisine, as well as activities that encouraged guests to interact.
After-dinner conversation was punctuated by sudden shrill whistles and drum beats as special guest One Drum appeared and ushered everyone to the auditorium for a performance of song, story, and dance rooted in the cultures of Africa, the Caribbean, Australia, the Middle East, and the Americas.
Key coordinator for the event was Marisol Miron '10 of Chicago, Illinois.
"Marisol is a Greater Chicago Christian Leadership scholar," said Dr. Nelvia Brady, professor of business and director of ethnic diversity. "Her excellent work on this event speaks to the quality of leadership expected of a GCCL scholarship recipient."
