The Trinity Family
“Family” is a word that is often used to describe the feeling of community at Trinity Christian College. It has been even more literal for the members of the Kamp family.
Henry and Grace Kamp are long-time supporters of the College and have had many children and grandchildren, as well as in-laws, attend, including: son Lambert ’81 (Lori ’87); son Bob ex ’82; daughter Judy VanderWall ’85; daughter Brenda Harms ’88 (Dennis ’89); and daughter Mary Vos ’92 (Robert ’88). This fall, three of their grandchildren will have enrolled.
“We are thankful for Trinity because our kids received a good, Christian education with a Reformed foundation,” said Henry.
Henry served on the Board of Trustees from 1980-1986 and was involved with the building of the Jennie Huizenga Memorial Library and some of the dorms. The couple has attended hundreds of athletics events as well as years of annual TAC golf outings and Jubilation! celebrations.
Henry and Grace received the Trinity Community Service Award in 2007.
Their reaction to receiving the Honorary Alumni Award is surprise. And their default is to immediately give glory to God. “We just thank God for his blessings,” said Grace, with Henry adding, “It’s all about God, not about us. We always try to support all of the kingdom activities.”
