After their last final exam, they went to the Celebration Center to worship together. Citizenship awards were given and those attending summer programs stood and were recognized by name and by the program they will enjoy. Classes were officially promoted to the next grade and then select teachers prayed over each grade with petitions specific to them, and Mrs. Davidson prayed over the faculty.

Trinity's Honor U.S. Government classes are often treated to guest speakers. Mrs. Caddow was very pleased to secure our newly elected Assemblymember for our district, Christy Smith. Both Caddow's class and Mr. Kulp's class were treated to an introduction to Mrs. Smith's experience prior to being elected, an overview of the structure of the state government, and some of the important issues facing our district. She left lots of time for Q & A and the students were all prepared with thoughtful questions.
