Featured Faculty - Janice McLaughlin

Ms. McLaughlin is a veteran teacher and a U.S. Army Veteran. She joined our CIS (middle school) Department this year as an English Instructor.

She holds a BS in Psychology and Special Education from Lynchburg College, a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Phoenix and an Ed. S. in Educational Leadership from Liberty University.

Hargrave is her first boarding school experience and she helps coach our junior varsity soccer and golf teams. "I was more of a chauffeur than a coach for soccer."

Janice has been married to William (also an Army Veteran) for 35 years and has three grown children. Her hobbies include spending time with her family, reading, crafts and travel. She has been to 48 states and only needs to visit Alaska and Oregon to complete her list.

As a local resident, she wishes that everyone knew how our "Cadets are great young men. There are a lot of awesome young men at Hargrave."

"I love working at Hargrave because I get to work alongside some incredible people, and my position as English Instructor offers me the opportunity to impact young men from all walks of life in a positive way. Whether in sports or in class, I can take the time to work individually with each Cadet to ensure their success."

Chatham Love

There is a new LOVEwork mural in our quaint little town of Chatham. Virginia has over 130 LOVEworks throughout the state. Each installation is unique and represents the community that hosts it.

When you look at the O, you will see five landmarks of our little town: Chatham Hall (a girls boarding school across town), the street car, the clock tower on the court house, the arch for Competition Alley, and of course Hargrave.

Sydney Lane, the local artist who designed and painted the mural, is a Chatham Hall alumnae (2012) and knows the importance our two schools have, not just in Virginia but in the world.

"I want it to inspire visitors, parents, alumni and people who have lived here their whole lives" she says.

The letter L represents why people choose to live and visit Chatham, O is for the History, V is for our place in the state of Virginia, and E is just for fun.

Several color drafts were completed but Sydney surprised our town with the monochrome scheme when the mural was unveiled a few weeks ago. "I felt that monochromatic was the best fit for Chatham. I did not want the mural to take away from the beauty that is my hometown," she says.

Alumni Inspection Winners

During Homecoming, one of the highlights for the alumni (and most of the Cadets) is a formal room inspection. This not only allows the alumni to see their old room and reminisce, but also gives our Cadets a chance to show off their military academy skills, compete against each other and to make connections with the alumni.

Bravo Company was the winner this year and the whole company was taken out to eat at a buffet in Danville (Cadets love buffets). The trip was sponsored by the alumni.

A new trophy was awarded this year in honor of Colonel Theodore Beck, former HMA Commandant. Congratulations Bravo Company for your hard work!

Yearbook Dedication

The 2019 yearbook dedication ceremony took place after Chapel on Tuesday. This year had several recipients - the Hargrave Maintenance Department. Our Cadets appreciate the hard work, dedication and sacrifice of our maintenance and housekeeping crew.

We thank you for everything you do for us and sacrifice in your own lives to be here whenever we need you.

Our staff keeps basic problems from becoming major ones, but more than that they show the Cadets what a team that is fully committed to helping others looks like. Day, night, rain or snow, they have never missed a day of hard work. Coming in while sick to repair or replace a leaky faucet or shower head is nothing short of extraordinary. They aren't just the maintenance staff, they are role models the Cadets can learn from and strive to emulate.
