The following statement was issued Monday by the office of Indiana Governor Mike Pence:
SOUTH BEND --Indiana Governor Mike Pence will visit Trinity School at Greenlawn during his trip to South Bend this Wednesday, April 2, to congratulate them for being the first school in Indiana to win four U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Awards. His visit follows the recent resolution by the Indiana General Assembly, HCR 45, which also congratulates Trinity, the ninth high school in the country to receive this distinction. Trinity won Blue Ribbons in 2013, 2002, 1993 and 1989.
Founded in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in students' academic achievement. It is considered the highest award that any U.S. school can receive.
"This fourth award speaks volumes about the consistency of our academic approach," said school headmaster John Lee. "Our parents and students believe in what we're doing as a school, and our faculty continually put the students first. We are delighted to welcome the Governor as we celebrate this achievement."
The Governor will be at the school from 1:30 to 2:00 congratulating faculty, staff and students.
