Dear Skyhawk Supporters,
Hammond offers so much to so many, and one of the greatest is opportunity. Opportunity for an excellent education. Opportunity to develop into the young men and women we as parents know they should. Opportunity to create relationships that transcend and survive the Hammond experience. As a back drop to all of these, is the opportunity to participate in athletics. Nearly 95% of Hammond Upper School students are on one or more varsity sports teams. There is no substitute for the life lessons these student-athletes learn on the playing field. At Hammond, the word “team” is not only defined by our exceptional athletes, but the team of families, friends, faculty, staff, alumni, and our expanded community that reaches beyond the playing field to lend support and encouragement
As Hammond celebrates 50 years of excellence, the legacy of Hammond Athletics survives for generations. As a Hammond student and Varsity athlete, I experienced firsthand the contributions of the Skyhawk Club to the Hammond athletic experience, both on and off the field. While new uniforms and appropriate coaching were awesome, none can forget the free iced tea or big cookie card from Hardees. Now, we have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Skyhawk Club members that came before us and enhance the lives of our children and many of their Hammond grandchildren.
Thank you for the investment you make in the heart of Hammond—not only for our many achievements on the field and in the classroom, but for the success our students experience in life. As we devote our time, energy and resources to the Skyhawk Club, not only are the lives of everyone in the Hammond community enriched, we continue the legacy of far-reaching benefits for generations to come.
It’s time to gear up for another outstanding season of Hammond athletics! Join us at an athletic event in support of the Skyhawks!
See you in the stands!
Skyhawk Club President 2018-2019
