Coach Roach chaperoned the SCUBA class as they got in the pool for their first time breathing under water. They will have one more pool dive followed by two open water dives, earning their open water Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Lifetime Certification.
Saturday evening, Hargrave hosted its first co-ed social in recent memory. It was a Game Night Social where the young men and young women were able to get together and play basketball, volleyball, board games, card games, chips-only blackjack, cornhole, table tennis and video games. They had all the Pizza Hut pizza, chips, cookies, cakes and sodas that they could possibly consume.
It was a huge success as there were 50+ young ladies from Chatham Hall and Salem Academy who came to have fun with the 60+ Cadets from Hargrave. There were huge smiles all night as they began to mingle and make new friends. Some of the young men invited their new-found friends to the upcoming Military Ball. It was a really fun night, and special thanks need to be made to the people that helped make the evening possible by chaperoning.
Ms. Kent took a group of Cadets over to the Pittsylvania County Pet Center for a service day. They got to help out with all sorts of tasks and really loved hanging out with their fuzzy friends. Serving others is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
