Awarded to Ruby Venkatesh
Trinity Episcopal School is dedicated to providing an enriched curricular program to each student. The School sets high academic standards and encourages excellence. This commitment to quality is shared by faculty, administrators, families, and students. Trinity’s Board of Trustees is entrusted with the responsibility to make the strategic and policy decisions that continually support and instill a sense of community-wide responsibility to scholarship. Hard work and creative leadership are required to create an atmosphere where citizens of the community develop an enthusiasm for learning and an appreciation for education. The greatest accomplishment of leaders shouldering this responsibility is to see this enthusiasm and appreciation being modeled by the children in their care. The Trustee Medal is awarded to the graduate with the highest overall average in core academic classes.
Awarded to Helena Donovan
Though alike in our commitment to rigorous and enriched academics, enhanced by moral and spiritual development, and delivered in a supportive environment, Trinity is a community distinct in many ways such as culture, race, religion, and socio-economic background. Trinity students are inspired to be connected to all peoples and empowered to recognize themselves as instruments of understanding, acceptance, and change. Respect of our differences is a core aspect of our culture. The greatest accomplishment of such a community is to see this connection being modeled by its children. The Fellowship Medal is awarded to the graduate who best exemplifies inclusiveness, acceptance, and understanding in everyday relationships and experiences at Trinity and in the larger world.
Trinity Spirit Medal
Awarded to Annabelle Judson
The essence and culture of Trinity Episcopal School is based on a mutual sense of respect, service, and dedication between families and the School where education is not a transaction but a partnership. Community members share their gifts of time, talent, and treasure generously and joyfully with one another. Trinity brings out the best in people and the Trinity ethos is self-perpetuating: living in a community that celebrates each individual’s strengths and contributions in turn motivates and encourages growth and giving. Adults in the community recognize the standard this type of behavior models to the children and, as students become older, they themselves begin to set the Trinity example. The greatest accomplishment of such a community is to see this example living in its children. The Trinity Spirit Medal is awarded to the graduate who is a tangible example of the intangible Trinity spirit. This student is characterized by a strong and good-humored work ethic, good citizenship, empathy, appreciation, and high morale.
James Edward Horne Medal
Awarded to Lorena Margain-Junco
This honor is inspired by the faith and commitment of Trinity Episcopal School’s founding Board President, Ed Horne. Ed dreamed of a school where children would be educated at every turn in the ways of living a values-based, faithful life. He led by example as he worked to bring that dream to fruition. Never one to doubt and with extraordinary grace, Ed devoutly accepted the mantle of this ministry as a calling from God. He often said, “If we keep God first, we will not fail.” Daring what some called impossible, he guided the founding of Trinity Episcopal School with faith, firm conviction, courage, humor, and wisdom. The greatest accomplishment of such a leader is to see these qualities living in children who enjoy the shade under the tree he planted.
Jane Ferguson Hill Medal
Awarded to Roman Rawie
As an educator, Jane Hill developed a vision of a unique culture of inclusion, diversity, academic excellence, and spiritual nourishment. Trinity arose from these ideals. Jane used her resolute faith, undying energy, and formidable skills as a leader to nurture a set of idyllic dreams into a real and vital educational community. Trinity is a place where nothing is impossible and anything can be imagined. Jane wrote, “The true drivers of Trinity and this vision do not lie in the people who were there in the beginning, who are here now or who will be here tomorrow. The true drivers of the Trinity experience are the mission and four core values and our collective commitment to them. The values are evident as we prepare children to be the leaders of tomorrow, to be people who love to learn, who can make good choices, who look for ways to serve others, who can face adversity, and who see themselves as complete and worthy children of God.” The Jane Ferguson Hill Medal was established to recognize a graduate for total contribution to the life of the School. Like Jane herself, this student is the personification of Trinity’s four core values: Christian Foundation, Enriched Academic Excellence, Diverse Community, and Commitment to Family.
