Some of those included the Troll Color Rush (formerly Troll Trot), where runners were doused with colored powder at different stations along the course; a sciences alumni breakfast; a choir alumni reunion and concert; and a men’s volleyball alumni game.
The Alumni of the Year Award recipients were recognized at a midday luncheon. Receiving awards were Alumna of the Year Louella DeVries ’93, president and licensed clinical professional counselor at Olive Branch Counseling Associates; and Honorary Alumni Keith and Bev Bruxvoort, friends of the College; Tim Timmons, director of the physical plant; and Dr. Mark Ward, former associate provost at Trinity and vice president for academic affairs at the University of Dubuque.
Other activities for alumni and families included a fun fair, a picnic, a Trinity improv show, and many sporting events. The women’s and men’s alumni soccer games and the baseball alumni game matched past and present Trolls players. In addition to the alumni games, the athletics department was busy with varsity soccer competitions and a rummage sale.
“We are always excited to see so many alumni back on campus and to have the chance to connect and see where life has taken them since Trinity,” said Travis Bandstra ’06, director of alumni relations.
