Welcome back, Sacred Heart! The start of a new school year doesn’t only mean new students, but new faculty and staff members as well. We took a few minutes to ask them exactly what drew them to Sacred Heart and why they wanted to work here. The common theme? The amazing sense of community, stemming from Goal IV, among the faculty, staff, and students. Read on to find out the ways in which they saw the values and mission of Sacred Heart being demonstrated in their interview processes, first days, and beyond.
