Lucy Cooper-Silvis ’21 (Loyola House)
Lucy Cooper-Silvis is the valedictorian of Trinity High School’s Class of 2021! In addition to challenging herself with demanding courses, Lucy has been heavily involved in Trinity’s Writers Club. She joined as a freshman and was elected president as a sophomore, and since that time she’s focused on growing the club’s membership. Covid introduced some challenges, which the club easily surmounted when Lucy moved meetings online. She and vice president Patrick Caffrey post weekly lessons for the members. Lucy cites Writers Club as her first concentrated effort to lead others, and thus far she’s learned lessons in compromise and organization.
In her own words: “Every class I’ve taken at Trinity has impacted me in one way or another. I’ve learned valuable study skills, critical thinking and analysis, and how to write well. AP World History, which I took in my sophomore year, might be the most influential class I took at Trinity. We started at the beginning of human civilization and ended with today, a whirlwind tour of the entire world. My favorite part was learning about all the different cultures of the world and the strangely unexpected ways they connect. It was my first AP class, too!”
Lucy plans to study English and Literary Arts at Brown University, where she plans to work in editing while she pursues the dream of being a famous author.
