Those gifts further enabled Trinity to earn a $300K matching grant from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation. This is the largest challenge grant in the school’s history.
“The Future Pathways Campaign has transformed our beloved campus and provided state of the art teaching and learning spaces for our arts and athletic programs in particular,” said Head of School Robert A. Short. “This continued effort comes thanks to the generosity and vision of so many dedicated faculty, staff, parents, alumni and friends of Trinity.”
A generous leadership gift of $1 million from Dr. W. Baxter Perkinson, Jr. and his wife, Elaine, set this project in motion. The first phase, completed in 2013, added renovated space for Trinity’s music and visual arts programs.
Trinity's theatre is perhaps the most important space on campus, because it is where the day begins with Morning Meeting. It's where Trinity gathers every day to reaffirm its sense of community. Improving and renovating the theatre has been critical to meeting the needs of Trinity's larger student body. The improvements will also make the theatre a better space for parent meetings, outside speakers and all performances.
