Trinity School of Midland, Tx
Amy Bell was a “lifer” at Trinity School of Midland. She began attending Trinity’s Pre-School program when she was three years old. She remained a student of Trinity until her graduation from high school in May 1999. Many of the principles and attitudes that Amy developed about showing kindness to others and looking out for those less fortunate were a result of the leadership and encouragement she received while attending Trinity. Amy was named to the Trinity School Hall of Honor, posthumously, for her work in serving those less fortunate. There is a courtyard at Trinity School, which provides a cozy, shaded area for students to study, named in Amy’s honor. There is also a newly-created educational
curriculum at Trinity School that is called BIGG -the Amy Bell Pay It Forward program. Big Ideas for the Greater Good, now a permanent part of the Trinity School curriculum, teaches children of the school, ages 5-14, the meaning of philanthropy and how to live their lives looking for opportunities to serve others. BIGG, established in Amy’s memory, teaches the children ways to identify the needs of those less fortunate, make a plan to meet those needs, and then meet those needs by delivering their “Amy Bell Charities Blue Bags” filled with the items that they have secured.
