Endowment

The Trinity School Endowment Fund helps to assure the school’s future while supporting its present needs. A healthy endowment can give a school a measure of financial stability and independence that it might not have otherwise. 

The Trinity School Endowment provides consistent, yearly support, not only for this year, but for years to come. The impact of the Endowment Fund is powerful, and its continued growth is critical to the long term sustainability of Trinity School.

Gifts to the Trinity School Endowment are accepted and appreciated at any time.

  • The Sweetie and Hal Clay Peck Memorial Speaker Series

    To summarize the life stories of Hal Clay Peck and Josie Fay “Sweetie” Peck is to celebrate all that is remarkable about West Texas and the men and women who have defined our history. Both Hal Clay and Sweetie had a passion for the oil industry and—equally important—a passion for family and community. They can both be accurately described as quietly generous, industrious, and proud to be Americans, Texans, and Midlanders.

    Hal Clay Peck was an independent oil man. The title speaks volumes about his tenacity, character, and life. Hal’s work ethic was legendary, and his accomplishments the result of persistence and of skill. In the early 1950’s, Hal deserves special recognition for developing the “Sweetie Peck” field on the Old Railway Ranch, a property that belonged to his beloved wife, and a discovery widely recognized as the beginning of the Permian Basin’s first full scale drilling boom. Hal was a proud patriot, a veteran of World War I, and an honorary Texas Ranger.

    Josie Fay “Sweetie” Jones was born into a pioneer ranching family, and her “pet name” was a gift from the cowboys who doted on the only baby in the family. Sweetie married Hal Peck in 1929 in Amarillo, Texas. Equally at home raising race horses, trading oil leases, or serving as a bank director, Sweetie was best known for her role as a civic leader. Sweetie could most certainly be described as a devoted wife and mother, but she could talk cattle, oil, and politics with the boys. She was a woman of intellect, grace, and means, using her influence and money to better both her family and her community.

    The Peck legacy, carefully protected and promoted by their only daughter, Patti Peck Wood and her late, husband, Danny Wood, continues to be a positive influence in the Midland community. The Woods endowed the Sweetie and Hal Clay Peck Memorial Speaker Series at Trinity School. The speaker series is an annual event that provides parents of students at Trinity School and in the wider community opportunity to learn more about the important role of positively influencing their children’s lives.
