Former Trinity High Students Tour Ebster

A group of former Trinity High Graduates toured the renovated Ebster  Gym today. The gym was formerly known as “the matchbox” for its small size. Jack Pitts, former quarterback and all around great guy, was moved to tears when he saw that there was a tribute to him in the Gym Lobby.

When the renovation is completed, the building will include a museum in the lobby honoring those who lived, worked and played in the neighborhood. Stay tuned for the upcoming grand opening and ribbon cutting coming sometime in February.
