Sacred Hearts Academy students participate in many extracurricular activities, with one in particular that aims to develop students into Hawaii’s future leaders.

Last month, CTL students visited the Hawaii News Now news studio, located in Kalihi, to learn more about leadership in the media industry. Students were able to ask reporter Mahealani Richardson various questions, ranging from her career aspirations to her day-to-day work schedule.

Students were then led onto the set, where they were able to meet reporters Guy Hagi and Stephanie Lum. They watched as Hagi reported on the weather.
