Passionate About Creating a Supportive Network
Welcome to Independent Trust, the network designed to build connections, engage, and support the professional goals of independent school alumni of color. I am Trina Gary, founder of Independent Trust, consultant, and former independent school administrator and teacher. I have worked with my partner, Michael Gary, in independent schools since 1989. We see the potential for alumni of color to connect with one another as well as with current students of color to provide opportunities for mentoring, employment, and professional networking.
