These Trojan Tutors have been working all year with the third graders of Chapel Hill Academy. Every Thursday, Richa Sharma asks the kids about their "favorites," usually ice cream or pie. Today, she asked them what their favorite thing about Trojan Tutors was. Most of the kids responded "Math Bingo," but some said just being with our Trojans. Some of our Trojans said they loved being hugged and welcomed with smiles every week from the Chapel Hill kids. Trojan Tutors are helmed by Richa Sharma and Lara Turan. Next year, it will be guided by Luke Vasquez and Kerry McKenzie.

On April 12, attorney Markus Kypreos '96 visited Mr. Kenny's Constitutional Law class to discuss the podcast Serial with the students. Markus touched on a few constitutional issues, primarily the 6th Amendment and more specifically, the right to an impartial jury, as well as how the jury selection process played out in this case and the right to assistance of counsel and how that helped or hurt Adnan [the defendant] in this case. Markus shares, "More importantly, since the students have listened to a very entertaining yet extremely one-sided podcast, the hope is that they’ll listen to the counter-argument and leave the class wondering why they weren’t given that information in the first place, to question every news story and to seek out the complete story or at least understand that a story reported doesn’t always contain all of the facts, especially in today’s media." It is always rewarding to have our alumni on campus interfacing with future alumni, and Markus's visits are eagerly anticipated. Markus, former Alumni Association president and father of TVS kindergartener Nikki, is very generous to give back in time and treasure to Trinity Valley School. Thank you, Markus!

Kishan, who won the TVS Nat Geo Bee back in January, was one of only 100 students across the entire state of Texas who qualified for today's competition.

Thanks to James Russell ’06, a journalist covering the Texas legislature in Austin, for requesting that Rep. Craig Goldman ’87 honor the 50th anniversary of the first graduating class with an official resolution presented before the legislature this week.  Says James, “I asked a fellow Trojan to file the resolution honoring the 50th anniversary of TVS' first graduating class because I know the school got us where we are today. We are not the only Trojans down here, though. We could have a caucus with TVS alumni dad Rep. Charlie Geren along with the various staffers and lobbyists.”  Thank you, James, and thank you, Craig!  This is a true honor.
