Sterling McKinney

Vestry Class of 2024

Having been born in Kerrville, Texas  Sterling,  as the saying goes, "wasn't born in Kimble County, but she got here as quickly as she could." Sterling was raised in this parish. She recalls, as a very young child, sleeping in the pew on Sunday morning. She was baptized, confirmed and married here  and, with a full heart, recalls burial services for both her beloved grandparents in this parish. A locally renowned culinarian, Sterling has enjoyed satisfying the gastric rumblings of untold numbers of Kimble County folks over the years.   When she's not busy in the kitchen, she helps Traci Phillips run Hill Country Homestead and Ranch Real Estate,  in downtown Junction.  At Trinity, she has previously served as an acolyte and as a Vestry member.  She is proud mom to three children. She finds enjoyment in her cooking as well as the outdoors. She finds fulfillment in interior design work as well.  Sterling especially loves watching her two teenagers growing and maturing.  She says, "Trinity will always be a part of me, it feels like home."
