Division of Education Adopts-a-Highway

When it became apparent that the Adopt-a-Highway sign on Route 22 in front of campus was available, Coordinator of Division of Education Services Margie Carrick found the necessary paperwork online and presented the idea to adopt Route 22 for Division of Education to Dr. Paul Worfel. Worfel in turn went up the chain of command and the ‘go ahead’ was given at every level.

After obtaining approval through the slow gears of government, this past Monday (7/21) the sign on Route 22 was changed from “Available” to “Education Dept., Trinity Intl U.” Plans are underway to have the first trash pick-up be the Saturday morning of Homecoming, October 11, with the hope that DOE students and alumni might join in the fun.

Remembering Wheaton’s Christopher Mitchell

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the unexpected death of Chris Mitchell, Wheaton professor and Director of the Marion E. Wade Center from 1994-2013. He also served as an adjunct at Trinity, and was much loved by many members of the TIU community.

A memorial service for Chris will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 18 at the Wheaton Bible Church, 27w500 North Avenue, West Chicago, IL. The visitation will be from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
