Trinity Ezell hosted the first ever Rockets Car Show at the Scranton City Park on August 7th, 2021. This event began as a class assignment for Mr. Bristol Chilton’s class. To prepare for the event, Trinity advertised in town and through Facebook to gain participation. Nearly 40 vehicles were entered into the show. Several students worked alongside Trinity to serve as judges. Trinity worked with school officials to ensure that community service hours could be earned for participating students. Not only did Trinity put on a successful event, but she also raised $847 for the local organization, Helping Our Kids. Awesome job, Trinity!!
