Trevor attended Abbett Elementary for Kindergarten, Vial Classical Academy from first through fifth grades, where he participated in the Piano Club & Theatre Arts all while thriving academically and ultimately earning a Duke Scholar Award in Writing. He then transitioned to Brandenburg Middle School where he continued to excel academically and proceeded to pursue his love for theatrics by performing at the Garland Plaza Theatre and various GISD schools. He went on to attend Lakeview Centennial High School as a collegiate student in the College and Career Magnet Program. During the 2017-2018 school year, Trevor received the Academic Excellence Award for having a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Driven by his extreme passion for football, particularly his love for the Philadelphia Eagles, Trevor’s extracurricular activities at Lakeview included participating in leading the film crew for the school’s football team in 2018-19. During his Sophomore year, he was a recipient of the Superintendent’s Scholar award for performing in the top ten percent in the nation on his SAT scores. As a Junior, Trevor participated in the Regional Academic Decathlon and won the following awards: sixth in Math, fifth in Literature and Art, fourth in Science, third in Music, and second in Social Science and Economics. He placed third for Individual All-Around and was the top scorer for the Honors Lakeview Team.
As a young boy, Trevor was a member of Cub Scouts Troop #344 and participated in Taekwondo where he earned his second-degree Black Belt at the North Dallas Martial Arts School in Richardson. He also attended Lavon Drive Baptist Church in Garland, Texas.
Among his hobbies, Trevor delighted in being an assistant Taekwondo instructor during the summers at Oakhill Day School and their sister school, Oak Park Day Care. His passion for continuous learning was evident in his constant reading, research, and debating of social, economic and political issues.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Ezra Scott and Gloria Scott, and his maternal grandfather, Adolph Azan, all in Jamaica. Those left to cherish precious memories include his parents, brother, Daniel Coffey, maternal grandparents, Eulalee Whitley and Percival Whitley, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
