Trinity High School has been setting aside money over two decades, placing it into a Strategic Reserve Fund for a potentially mission-altering emergency.
Well, the emergency has arrived in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has left the families of a good many Trinity students in financial straits. Now the school’s leadership — board, administration and the sponsoring order of nuns — have decided to tap the Strategic Reserve for $1 million to be used on a needs basis for tuition relief come fall.
Rightly, the school will also turn to its families, its alums, its benefactors with a goal of raising an additional $1 million to underwrite tuition next year.
“For more than 102 years the Trinity High School family has weathered world wars, the Great Depression and countless other challenges,” the school wrote in a message to its families and supporters.
With this act of prudent generosity, Trinity will weather this storm, too.
