Dan has had a successful career as a college football coach (he is currently the head coach at Mississippi State) and has parlayed that success into some amazing charitable work. In an emotional acceptance speech, Dan credited Trinity High School and God for forming him to be the person he is today and said all he ever wanted to do was coach football. Shannon is an accomplished attorney at the prestigious law firm Ropes and Gray in Boston and recently published a book titled "Method 15/33." Kathleen has had a distinguished career in Catholic ministry, here in the Diocese of Manchester and for a time in New Jersey. She is presently the Vice president of Mission and Ethics at St. Joseph's Hospital in Nashua.
I had the pleasure of offering grace and saying a few words of welcome. Our good friend Charlie Sherman, the executive director of New Horizons, served as our MC and offered some generous words about the relationship Trinity has with New Horizons, especially via Cardboard City. It was an affirming evening for all that we do, past and present.
