We Are The Trolinger Foundation. Welcome To Our New Blog



Our Story

The inspiration for The Trolinger Foundation stems from the man known mostly as “Coach” or Mr Trolinger. He always goes the extra mile even when there does not seem to be an extra mile anywhere in sight.

As former students and players of Coach, we wanted to create something that would honor him in a way that was unique and would be a lasting testament to his generosity.

What a better way than to give College Scholarships to deserving young women and men graduating from high school and pursuing their dreams.

In the spirit of Coach, this foundation will give back to a program that is very dear to him.
