Better Education. Brighter Future.

Diversity Council

Vision:  The DC seeks to develop and foster an inclusive, welcoming school where all are valued and celebrated as Children of God.

Specific projects include sponsoring a trip to Kansas City to see the Negro League Baseball and Jazz Museums, gathering for liturgy in the city, planning and facilitating the Thanksgiving movie day at Trinity, highlighting a theme of Diversity (cancelled in 2014 due to Ferguson), providing awareness to the school during anti-bullying month and providing funding for a Thanksgiving basket for area needy.  Plans moving forward into 2015-16 include fundraising for a trip to the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, informal movie and discussion evenings, Hispanic month event, increased emphasis on Black History month, including a concept dinner event (Soul Food Cooking Demonstration and sampling paired with a speaker - Coach Hite). Several key members of the Diversity Council participated in the Edward Jones/Diversity Awareness Partnership training; this provided formation and leadership training for councilpersons.  As the council reforms in the wake of graduation of the bulk of active members, they will redefine their mission and vision.
