2000 - present

Anna Keisling, Class of 2001

I am thrilled to announce my recent engagement to Dan Robillard! He asked me to marry him on a wonderfully romantic night in December in New York City. We're planning a late summer/early fall wedding in El Paso, Texas. Dan is a Sound Engineer and is currently heading up the Broadway show "Wonderful Town."  I was very excited to have my Broadway debut in December, even though the show has since closed! I am currently working on recording a new original album, and pursuing the Broadway dream. My TU business degree is coming in handy as I've got a management postion at the Hilton Theatre where the show "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" will open in the spring. I hope everyone is doing well and I would love to hear from friends! Take care everyone!    


1990 - 1999

Lisa Breytspraak, Class of  1995

This post is a bit delinquent, but I have a New Years resolution to get back in touch with people, so here goes…  I finished my MBA at Duke in May and moved to Chicago help start Pariveda Solutions, an IT consultancy that specializes in helping IT organizations run more like businesses.  The rest of my company, including Jim Smelley ’95, is based in Dallas, so I spend a lot of time in big D as well.  Chicago is so fun and I’m having a great time starting this company.  I’d love to hear from anyone!


Martina Jones Longoria, Class of 1995

Martina, her husband Johnny, and their daughter Hannah recently moved to Houston where Martina is now employed as an Assistant Criminal District Attorney. Hannah will be 2 years old in March.

Your class reunion gift (like all alumni gifts) helps Trinity provide scholarships and financial aid to worthy students, attract talented faculty into the classrooms and laboratories, keep the Trinity campus beautiful, and provide cutting edge technology in classrooms and residence halls.  Most importantly, your Annual Fund gift is your ‘vote’ for Trinity’s continued success and your commitment to its future.
