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!

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.

What a treat to have Meera Namireddy, Ryan Jacobs, and Rowland Pettit - all 2012 TVS grads - as guests for the TVS Upper School Science Speaker Series. On December 13, this threesome, in their first year at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, visited with Upper School students considering careers in medicine and other scientific fields.  Meera (Rice University), Ryan (Washington University - St. Louis), and Rowland (Duke University) reflected on their TVS and undergrad experiences, and offered suggestions to Upper Schoolers on topics ranging from course choices to time management to internship possibilities.  They shared their contact information with the TVS students, and the doctors-to-be offered their time and support to their fellow Trojans who might seek their advice.  Thank you for sharing your day with us, you three!

October 21 was a fabulous night - perfect football weather, fun for all at the fiesta dinner, a stadium packed with Trojan fans, and a stunning victory over ESD. Alumni and current families watched the game and caught up with friends while little children bounced, had their faces painted, and played with balloon masterpieces. Afterwards, alumni gathered at Lone Star Oyster Bar to celebrate not only the Trojans' win but all the memories of their years at TVS.
