We are all born with special gifts, and for one Longview volunteer, the gift of service is what she believes she has been blessed to do. Beth Price, a Trinity School of Texas (TST) board of trustee member, has found her calling through her service to the school and in the community.
On Friday, April 26, TST will hold their Spring Gala. The event will include dinner, auctions, live entertainment, and a raffle drawing. Mrs. Price is serving as one of 24 TST mothers, grandmothers, faculty members, and community leaders coming together to raise money for the four pillars of TST. The four pillars are Spirituality, Academics, Fine Arts, and Athletics, and are supported by six women who believe strongly in the mission of TST. Proceeds will benefit the programs offered at the school.
Mrs. Price is also serving as co-chair for the upcoming Trinity School of Texas’ annual Pam Pope Memorial 5K Run & Walk that will be held Saturday, April 20. In addition to her involvement with TST, she serves on the board of directors for the Gregg County Historical Museum, and was an active participant in the recent Gregg Country Museum’s annual Dalton Days event. Mrs. Price also serves on the board of directors for United Fund of Kilgore, and is a member of both the Kilgore Independent School District Parents Association and the Junior League of Longview.
“I believe in giving back to the community in which we live and striving to make the area a better place,” Mrs. Price said.
Born in Cleveland, Mississippi, Mrs. Price has resided in Kilgore, Texas, for the past five years. She and her husband, Vic, have been married 22 years and are the parents of Clinton, 16, and twins Hunter and Ian, 14. Mrs. Price earned her bachelor’s degree from Delta State University in Cleveland, and her master’s degree and juris doctorate from the University of Memphis in Memphis, Tennessee. The Price family are members of First Baptist Church in Kilgore where Mrs. Price serves on the youth council committee.
“We have enjoyed our time in East Texas and getting to know the people of the community,” Mrs. Price said. “It has proven to be a wonderful, safe place to raise our family, and it is full of caring, generous people and it is a privilege to be able to serve alongside such special people.”
