Trinity Greenlawn Alumni Sing in New Video

Trinity School at Greenlawn unveiled their newest video at a celebration held at the school on Saturday night. The one-minute video highlights Trinity alumni and their impact on the wider world. Alumni from throughout the years appear doing what they love--fighting fires, performing ballet, teaching, even skydiving, all while singing along to a catchy tune.

The video was part of a larger celebration of Trinity's fourth blue ribbon award from the US Department of Education. Speakers paid tribute to Greenlawn teacher Barbara Koller (South Bend), who will retire from teaching this spring after 28 years. Her career included stints teaching at all three campuses of Trinity Schools. Kerry and Barbara's five children, all Greenlawn alums, attended the celebration. Their daughter, Katherine Brophy (Colorado Springs), honored Barbara on behalf of her siblings. Close to 175 people attended the event, according to Mary Claire Caneff (South Bend).

The following is a list of alumni who appear in the video (in the order of their appearance).
