Trent graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a double major in Marketing and International Business, including a semester abroad at Sophia University in Tokyo.
He graduated as valedictorian of his high school class, while also passing 7 AP exams and receiving the title of AP Scholar with Distinction. By balancing strong academic and standardized test performance with leadership across athletics, music, and volunteer clubs, Trent was selected as 1 of 60 students from his freshman class at UW-Madison to receive direct admission to the Wisconsin School of Business.
