Spiritual Emphasis Week 
Spiritual Emphasis Week took place from Sunday, February 9th, to Friday, February 14th. On Sunday, Hargrave hosted the musical group Southside Regional Celebration composed of different Christian denominations from across Southern Virginia. They shared the Gospel through song and the message of Dr. Sheila Isom. On Monday and Tuesday, a CCM band from Liberty University, Relinquish, joined guest speaker Seth Peterson (student minister at First Baptist Church of Norfolk, Virginia) to bring a powerful evangelistic message that led to some cadets making a decision to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. On Wednesday, Christian rapper Chang3, Corey Thomas (hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia) delivered an energetic performance that inspired cadets to rise in joy and praise God. On Thursday and Friday, the band Red Letter Society joined guest speaker Jordan West (hailing from Richmond, Virginia) for an incredible worship experience. Again, several cadets took the next step in their faith journey on the path to becoming true disciples of Jesus Christ.
Throughout the week, our special guests interacted with our cadets across campus even participating in our Cadet/Advisor Spiritual Emphasis dinner. In the evenings, we had enlightening small group discussions where cadets shared stories of heartbreak and triumph as well as asking some difficult questions about faith. Be sure to check out Hargrave's social media channels for videos and photos!


Pittsylvania Pet Center
On Sunday, Feb 16th, cadets Benjamin, Francis, and Marquardt got up bright and early and braved to cold in order to bring tail wags and clean cages to the critters at the Pittsylvania Pet Center.  After a couple of hours of hard (and at times pretty gross) labor, the payoffs were obvious.



Open Weekends - Parent Council


If you are coming to pick up your cadet on a Friday at lunchtime for an Open Weekend, please look for Parent Council members in the Military Office. We would LOVE to meet you, find out how you and your son doing, and answer any questions you may have. We will be available starting at 12 noon (check-out is 12:30pm), so come look for our “HMA Parent Council” sign and PC members wearing their name tags. Hope to see you on one of the following Fridays: 02/07, 02/28, 03/20 (start of Spring Break), 04/10, and 05/01.


Coach Martin Reaches Career Milestone


In just his 111th game as head coach of the Tigers, Martin earned his 100th career victory, all before his 30th birthday. "It's a surreal feeling," remarked Martin. "I have been extremely fortunate in my time here to be surrounded by great players and great people. This a huge honor and I'm very humbled."


Hargrave Hike


Members of the Corps of Cadets participated in a Saturday morning hike. The Hike was 3.1 miles long and took the cadets throughout the beautiful 200+ acre Hargrave campus. Although it was a brisk morning with a little frost on the ground, the cadets quickly warmed up and found motivation through the unity of the Corps to complete the hike. Each cadet carried with them a rucksack full of items and rifles as they ran, jogged, and walked the hilly course. The hike is in preparation of the upcoming Eye of the Tiger competition where cadets will be challenged mentally and physically. Upon completion, the cadets enjoyed donuts, Gatorade, and camaraderie. It was a great way to start the day!


Swim at State Swim Championships


The qualifying members of the Hargrave Swimming team took the trip to Christiansburg, VA, to compete in the VISAA State Swimming Championship over the weekend. Throughout a weekend of great competition, the Tigers emerged proud of their performance to cap off the 2019-2020 season. Hargrave placed 13th overall in the state (out of 45 teams that qualified for the Championship meet).  Hargrave finished 3rd out of 27 teams in our Division (Divison 2). It was an outstanding performance, both as a team and individuals, to round out an incredible season!

Valentine's Day Win 


Keeping with tradition, the infirmary rolled out another candy give away to brighten our cadets' Valentine's Day. Cadets had to guess the correct amount of candy hearts in a jar. Cadet Emerson was the winner!


Winter Fun Day


Last Wednesday, cadets were treated to a morning of relaxation and entertainment in the gymnasium to break the winter doldrums. Starting off the morning and possibly the highlight of hilarity for the day, was a failed attempt by Cadet Higden to pie Colonel Morris. Cadets enjoyed various inflatable stations including a life-sized hungry hippos game, an obstacle course, a mechanical bull, and even American Gladiator-styled jousting. Several action packed events also occurred including raffles, a half court contest, ping-pong, basketball and cornhole. The morning ended with a catered lunch in the gym by Sage Dining Services.  The Parent's Council also set up a pizza station for any cadets who needed a little more fuel for the fun!
