TEF Ignites 'A Blast!' For the Future, Honors Inductees to the Trenton Wall of Fame
The Trenton Educational Foundation is holding the thirteenth annual Signature Event on Friday, November 17, 2023, at Crystal Gardens in Southgate.
The Wall of Fame volunteer committee has chosen three new Inductees for the November 17 event. They have inducted thirty people over twelve years. This year's recipients are Clifton Mace, Ann Marie Lipinski and Joe Hoshaw, Jr.
Clifton Mace was an educator in Trenton from 1966-1999. He held leadership positions in Monguagon, Hedke, Owen and Taylor Elementary in Trenton. He was a good listener and problem solver in his leadership roles and he was firm yet fair with students. He volunteered in the Lions Club and Goodfellows for over thirty years. He passed away in 2017.
Ann Marie Lipiniski is a 1974 Trenton graduate who excels in her industry of journalism. She participated in many THS activities including the Trojan Trumpet editor, Student Council and National Honor Society. She went on to become a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and Curator of the Nieman Foundation of Journalism at Harvard University. She was also Editor in Chief and Senior Vice President at the Chicago Tribune amongst other accolades.
Joe Hoshaw Jr. is a 1975 Trenton graduate who wrote for the Trojan Trumpet and played Football. His excellence in journalism stemmed from his participation in the Trojan Trumpet and led him to the Mellus/News Herald Downriver, where he served as Reporter, Business and Auto Editor and Assistant Managing Editor from 1981-99 before starting his own Public Relations company as well as serving as President for the Trenton Rotary club. He then partnered at the Trenton Trib as Editor from 2009-2021 where he mentored many Trenton students in the journalism field as well as providing the community with a quality, compelling and detail filled local newspaper.
This Blast! will include futuristic fun, raffles, silent auction, and a family style dinner, and a recap program of last year's teacher/staff grants.
