Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.
Teachers are the backbone of Catholic schools. Today is National Appreciation Day for Catholic School Teachers, which celebrates and honors over 152,000 Catholic school teachers who give time, energy and care to their students. The Catholic identity of the school resides within each member of the faculty. A school is Catholic because the faculty models the message of the Gospel. A school is Catholic because the faculty integrates gospel values into the content it teaches. A school is Catholic because the faculty challenges students to accept the call of the Gospel.
Fellow students—take a moment today to show your gratitude and say “thank you” to your teachers for their service and dedication as a Catholic school teacher. We are Trinity: We learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.

Your Trinity academic team made history this weekend. For the first time in 20 years, the Trinity Shamrocks won District in Governor’s Cup. St. X has held the crown going back to the 1990’s but no more. Competing against St. X, Collegiate and Sacred Heart, the Rocks face perhaps the toughest District in Kentucky. The quick recall team of Luke McFarland, Henry Mullins, Nick Huls, David Gregory, Sammy Mattingly, Spencer Brown and Jack McCalpin dominated the field, ending the day with a 38-17 defeat of St. X to win the quick recall title. That makes the quick recall team 5-0 versus St. X this year, but many individuals played a role in bringing glory to the Shamrocks, too.
Placing for the Rocks were:
Luke McFarland: 1st in Language Arts and 3rd in Arts & Humanities
Eric Brian: 1st in Social Studies
Henry Mullins: 2nd in Arts & Humanities
Nick Thevenin: 2nd in Math
Bruno Santic: 2nd in English composition
David Gregory: 3rd in Math
Nick Huls: 4th in Language Arts and 5th in Social Studies
Sammy Mattingly: 4th in Science
Dylan Fox: 4th in Arts & Humanities
