GALVESTON — Trinity Episcopal School is inviting the public to the Trinity Tribute, which will honor Melissa and Craig Eiland on April 26 at The Galveston Yacht Club.

The Eilands have given their support to help establish the Trinity Learning Lab, a tutoring center where learning support is given on-site during the school day.

Melissa took a personal interest in establishing the lab, which opened in 2008.

Throughout the years, Trinity Episcopal School has earned a solid academic reputation with a traditional approach to education.

“Our students have shown us that all children learn differently and some students need additional educational intervention in order to succeed academically,” said Head of School the Rev. David Dearman.

For the last six years, the Eiland Family Christian Charitable Foundation provided ongoing funding to support the operation of the lab. This generous funding has allowed the lab’s services to be offered at affordable rates.

Now that this startup funding has been completed, the school wishes to give thanks on behalf of all the children who have benefited from the careful attention of Learning Lab tutors.

On April 26, the Galveston community will gather at The Galveston Yacht Club for the Trinity Tribute, honoring the Eilands for what they have done for Galveston — and especially their support of individualized education at Trinity Episcopal School.

All of the net income from this event will support the academic program of Trinity Episcopal School.
