The Blake Hubbard Learning Commons | The HUB
And this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
The Blake Hubbard Learning Commons, The HUB, stands as the true hub of our campus. The building serves all divisions and brings the Trinity community together in myriad ways: through weekly worship services, and as a gathering space, an event site, and a place filled with laughter and goodness—a place very much like Blake Brower Hubbard. Blake never met a stranger, and his sense of fun encouraged friends to gather around him and join in many adventures. His deep faith rooted his young life and served as a way for him to open his heart to his family and friends. The HUB stands as a testament to Blake’s love, faith, and friendship.
BLAKE BROWER HUBBARD | 1997–2012
Blake Brower Hubbard was born in 1997 to Jeff and Patty Hubbard and grew up alongside his older siblings Robert and Lauren in Durham, NC. Blake committed his heart to Christ at an early age, and his life became a testament to his faith.
Blake began making immediate and lasting impressions on his classmates and teachers from the moment he arrived at Trinity in kindergarten. Compassionate, selfless, creative, and exuberantly playful, he never let a moment slip by without having fun, and his energy and kindness were contagious. Blake taught us all what it meant to be unhurried: to listen more, to play with imagination, to eat slowly, to be present, to invest in relationships. Through his quiet but powerful presence Blake built friendships, strengthening the Trinity community.
These enduring memories of Blake continue to inspire and energize the Trinity community to this day. This building, The HUB, preserves and proclaims Blake’s story through its creative, dynamic, and playful design. Students come to The HUB for a variety of reasons: to converse with friends, collaborate with teachers, find a quiet space, and worship with their peers. In doing so, The HUB seeks to honor Blake by fostering fellowship centered in Christ.
