Living as Jesus' Disciples

Eighth graders Bethannie and Enorguehi may be going on to high school next year, but that is not stopping these girls from making known their legacy while still at TCA. Last year, Bethannie and Enorguehi set up a toy drive for disadvantaged youth in the Brockton community, totaling more than 50 gifts given to children last year. Hopeful that they will match their record from last year, Enorguehi says, “Even if we don’t get as many gifts as last year, it’s all about the effort.”

Giving back is a legacy well known to both Bethannie’s and Enorguehi’s family households. Every holiday season, Bethannie’s family sends toys to her cousins in Haiti, and Enorguehi's family sends toys for relatives in Nigeria. Inspired by the kindness of her parents, Bethannie states her reason for giving back as simply as, “What can I do to help kids who don’t get gifts during the holiday season feel like someone will always be there for them?” For Enorguehi, the toy drive comes back to her love of kids. "I want to do something helpful that will benefit kids," she says. As a follow up, she adds, “To show that Trinity is with you.”

When it comes to their ideas and actions, Bethannie and Enorguehi take little to no credit. Bethannie remarks, “Little things can make a big difference. We’re Jesus’ disciples. Jesus’ disciples help spread the good word and we spread the word by caring for others.”
