Every week, Trinitonian staff members work tirelessly to bring you engaging and informative stories. Sometimes, members of the professional press reward that work with local, state, or national recognition.

The game was simple. First, one middle school girl wrote instructions on how to create the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
