Sacred Heart School is pleased to announce the that Herman Boone, the head coach whose monumental real life story was captured in the film, Remember the Titans, will be the featured DAY ONE speaker. He will address students, parents, parishioners and alumni at Sacred Heart on September 6th.
In 1971, as the city of Alexandria Virginia was consolidating their schools, Boone was appointed head coach at T.C. Williams High School. Remarkably, Boone was able to solidify a diverse coaching staff and unite a group of players into one of the most powerful football teams in the nation. Boone will share an inspiring message about the importance of treating others with respect and kindness.
Boone will speak to SHS students in grades 5-12 at 1:00pm in the Merth Gymnasium on Tuesday, Sept. 6th. All Sacred Heart parents, parishioners, and alumni are invited to attend the event.
Boone is the second guest speaker brought to Sacred Heart for the school’s DAY ONE activities. Matt Birk, former Minnesota Viking and Super Bowl Champion with the Baltimore Ravens spoke to students to kick off last year’s DAY ONE. The DAY ONE speaker serves to invigorate and excite students about the coming year.
Sacred Heart School is accepting applications for K-12 students and offers a willingness to try to make the school a financial possibility for all families. The school has made the pledge that no family will be denied a Catholic education based on finances.
