Just under 400 8th graders arrived at Trinity for the annual Placement Test on Dec. 14. The number of testers is the second most in the past eight years.

Attracted by our block schedule, House System and record levels of student achievement, the eighth graders represent a wide variety of Catholic, private and public schools. All will find a place at Trinity and quickly become Brothers for Life.

Director of Admissions James Torra had this to say, “I enjoy meeting prospective parents in the months leading up to the test. I learn about their son and the hopes and dreams they have for him. We provide compelling and honest answers about our offerings. This turnout today indicates families are willing to trust us and partner with us for the benefit of their son. This means so much to us.”

Trinity will continue enrolling the broadest possible range of learners. We welcome the opportunity to move each student through this experience. Eventually, they will enter the lifelong relationship we have with them as alumni.

Principal Dr. Dan Zoeller remarked, “I have the utmost confidence in our teachers, counselors, and staff members. They enjoy working with teenage boys. They relish the chance to teach, and they do it really well. With our expanding college and career counseling efforts, we will be even better at helping students chart their future. Along the way, we will instill lessons that help them become Men of Faith and Men of Character.”

Trinity senior Nicholas Huls recently found out that he was selected as one of two student delegates to represent Kentucky at the 58th annual United States Senate Youth Program to be held in Washington, D.C., March 7 – 14, 2020. The Kentucky Department of Education selects two students from the state to represent Kentucky for one week in Washington D.C. The selection process includes an application, a timed test and a phone interview. In addition, Nick will also receive a one-time $10,000 scholarship that can be used for his undergraduate education at the institution of his choice.

“I am very thankful for the people at Trinity who enabled me to be selected for this program. Ms. Kerns brought this opportunity to my attention and I immediately knew it would be a great match with my areas of interest. After the initial application, the next step was to take a written exam about national and state government, as well as related current affairs. Several weeks later, the final step was a phone interview with a panel from the Kentucky Department of Education. I am very glad I had Mr. Napper in class for U.S. History and American Government and Politics because his teaching style has really encouraged me to look at history and government in a new light. This is also my area of interest and concentration on the quick recall team under the direction of Mr. Amick, Mr. Rand and Mr. Napper.”

Washington Week is a unique educational experience that is jam-packed with events and tours where Nick will meet elected and appointed officials at the highest level of government and learn about the history and processes of our democracy.

Huls believes that his experiences in student government greatly helped his application process. “Demonstrated leadership is a large component in being selected for this program. My role as Executive Captain of Flannan House in student government is one way in which I fulfilled this requirement. My past four years in student government have been a great way to invest in the Trinity community because I have been able to provide input on ideas from added dress down days for charity to adding another ketchup station in the cafeteria. I always enjoy talking about ways to improve a school that has meant so much to me.”

Way to go, Nick! We are so proud of you.

See below for the official press release regarding Nick’s selection:

Nicholas Huls, a senior at Trinity High School, serves as Executive Captain in Trinity’s house system and as a member of student government. He is a National Merit semifinalist, an AP Scholar with Distinction, and a Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program participant. Nick is vice president of National Honor Society, president of Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society, and president of Y-Club, which encompasses Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) and Kentucky United Nations Assembly (KUNA) delegations. He received an Outstanding Speaker award at KYA and co-authored a KUNA resolution which received an Outstanding Resolution distinction. Nick is captain and a third-year varsity starter of the quick recall team and serves as the student representative on Trinity’s Academic Environment Committee. He also participates in jazz band, the St. Joseph of Arimathea Society, Blessings in a Backpack youth advisory board, peer tutoring and immersion mission trips through Hand in Hand Ministries.
