Dear Chair’s Circle Member, In 1918, Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States, delivered the Commencement address at Trinity College at the request of his friend, Trinity President Flavel S. Luther. To commemorate his visit, the following year, a large rectangular paver known as the Luther-Roosevelt stone was laid into the sidewalk in front of the Fuller Arch at Northam Towers in the center of the Long Walk. During his eight-year presidency, Roosevelt inspired others through his vision, true grit, and leadership. He once said: “People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives.” More than a century later, Roosevelt’s words still resonate. You, my Chair’s Circle colleague, are a leader, and your leadership as a member of the Chair’s Circle in partnership with President Joanne Berger-Sweeney and the members of the Board of Trustees is projecting Trinity boldly into the future. I am grateful for your unwavering support and commitment to our College’s mission. Your philanthropic leadership and vision help to preserve the core values and deeply rooted traditions of a Trinity education, and I appreciate our shared passion for our extraordinary College. President Berger-Sweeney reinforced this message in her Convocation speech to the Class of 2019: “And so today, as you embark on your time at Trinity College, I wish for all of us to work together, for our hearts and minds to be as one in support of our intellectual and social community.” Through your generosity, you play a leading role in further strengthening our College and impacting the lives of our students. Your leadership is critical to Trinity’s ongoing success as a top liberal arts college, and it is by your example that you have caused others to take notice. Roosevelt also said, “Example is the most potent thing of all things.” With that in mind, I am pleased to honor your contribution and all in this August leadership group by presenting the Chair’s Circle membership roster. As you scroll through the list, please know that, together, we are leading the charge to provide a transformative college experience to more than 2,200 Trinity students who are on their way to making a difference beyond the Long Walk. On behalf of President Berger-Sweeney and the entire Trinity community, I thank you for your leadership and support. Best wishes,
