Students Win Award at Multicultural Leadership Conference

Nine students recently attended the National Christian Multicultural Student Leaders Conference (NCMSLC) at Eastern University in Philadelphia where they received an award for their plan for maintaining a multicultural program at Trinity.

Participating colleges were asked to create a brief proposal describing how they will begin or maintain a multicultural program on their campuses. Building on last year’s idea of “Faith Without Borders,” the Trinity team presented its proposal, which was one of four to win a $2,500 award.  The money will go toward continuing the College’s multicultural efforts. 

“The greatest thing about the conference is that there were over 50 ethnicities represented, so there was no majority,” said Tabitha Matthews, resident director for Alumni Hall, “just the fact that the majority of people love the Lord and feel called to do his work on their campuses.”

The conference gave students the opportunity to interact and share ideas with students from other schools.

“We met a lot of people, the workshops were great, and, most important, we came back more united than ever,” said Matthews.

Trinity’s attendance at the conference was sponsored by the Ethnic Diversity Committee. For more information about the conference, visit the NCMSLC Web site at
