Exhibiting Espirit De Corps

Many eyes were on Sacred Hearts Academy's Air Riflery team this past week since the Academy was competing as the defending State Champion. After sitting on edge for seemingly forever, we received the news! 

After all shots were fired, the Lancers held a three-point lead over their closest competitor – only to find out that there was a shooter’s error in not closing the bolt after loading her rifle. In final tabulation, the penalty was 12 points, and Sacred Hearts lost the title. 

What happened afterwards made the entire school ‘ohana proud because our team rose to heights of stellar character. According to one trusted observer, no one person received the glory, nor the blame, as they were of “ONE HEART.” This observer described what she saw as “ESPRIT DE CORPS,” usually defined as a spirit existing in the members of a group and inspiring enthusiasm, devotion and strong regard for the honor of the group. It usually defines something that cannot be measured by scores or acknowledged by a trophy.

When this observer shared her perspective with our Head of School, Betty White, her heart and the Academy's collective 'ohana burst with pride because the soul of our team emerged over the quantifiable scores.

We are ever so proud of our persistent and courageous Lancers

Aloha From Fuzhou, Fujian, China!

A special message and update from Sacred Hearts Academy Head of School, Betty White, as she travels abroad with eight Academy "Trimble Scholars" guided by longtime Academy friends, Sonia & Gordon Trimble, and Noe Gunderson Oliver, '96, on a cultural exchange with students attending Hwa Nan Women's College in Fuzhou, Fujian, China.

"To be here in Fuzhou, Fujian, China, living on Hwa Nan Women's college campus and surrounded by Chinese educators and students, is an incredible experience. Our hosts are so very cordial, kind and hospitable. Our students are like sponges—soaking up every opportunity to learn and enjoy the experience.
For every activity or excursion, our students have a Chinese sister with them. Yesterday, Eden and Kira were interviewed by a cameraman about their experience so far, and they related how safe the Chinese Sisters made them feel. Later that day we gathered on the athletic field for games led by our hosts. Incredible —the same games I recall playing as a child, thousands of miles from China.  
Today’s schedule is packed—mountain climbing, having a vegetarian lunch prepared by monks, and attending a formal dinner in honor and memory of Bob Trimble, the late father of Gordon Trimble. We have experianced so much in the short time we have been here already; and are excited for the days ahead! We hope everyone had an enjoyable Fall Break and we look forward to sharing in our expereince with you all when we return home!" - Betty White, Sacred Hearts Academy Head of School
