At the Trinity School at Greenlawn commencement in June, Kevin Ranaghan and Kerry Koller honored Paul DeCelles for his 30 years of service as chair of the board of trustees of Trinity Schools.
Kerry Koller: The Trinity School Vision
"Trinity School owes its essence and its very existence to Paul DeCelles—he gave us as a school a love for humanity, for human desires and for the human project."
Kevin Ranaghan: Paul DeCelles and 30 years of Trinity School
“If Paul DeCelles is to be thought of nautically in relation to Trinity, I have to say, without fear of exaggeration, that he has been Trinity’s architect and builder. He has been Trinity’s captain and navigator and at times its helmsman. He has fulfilled all these functions for more than 30 years. The result is that Trinity floats, sails, survives the tempests, and comes safely to port year after year.”
“We treat each other like family here,” he said. “It’s like one big community that’s all one big family. And the fact that some of us are actually family has made it a lot easier to explain what it is we’re doing.”
