Georgetown Gathering with Margaret Brennan '98, Host of Face the Nation on CBS
On February 7, alumnae from Sacred Heart Greenwich, Convent of the Sacred Heart - 91st Street, Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, and Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, many of whom are current Georgetown University students, joined Head of School Pamela Juan Hayes '64 at Georgetown’s McCourt School for Public Policy for a gathering with Margaret Brennan '98, host of Face The Nation on CBS. In 2015, Margaret was the Commencement Speaker at Sacred Heart Greenwich and during the alumnae gathering, Sarah Jackmauh '15, a current senior at Georgetown, got to turn the table and lead a Q&A with Margaret. During the discussion, Margaret touched on how she attributes much of her success to her experience on King Street, specifically the impact of many faculty members who taught her that words matter and to have courage in her own conviction.
Shortly after meeting with Sacred Heart alumnae, Margaret appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Check out Margaret's conversation below, which spans topics from what it is like to host Face the Nation to interviewing President Trump before the Super Bowl.
During the same trip, Head of School Pamela Juan Hayes '64 also welcomed alumnae from the Virginia area to a luncheon in Alexandria on February 8.

For over 35 years, Sacred Heart Greenwich students have traveled to Lourdes to work with the sick pilgrims. Each July, the Ampleforth Pilgrimage enables the sick to visit the grotto, where St. Bernadette received a number of apparitions of the Blessed Mother. Long after they have left our campus on King Street, students talk of the lasting impact this international service trip had on their experience at Sacred Heart Greenwich. On February 4, Margaret Shafer ’01, who has attended the pilgrimage for many years including the one this past July, joined students who visited Lourdes this past summer while they had the opportunity to share their own memorable experiences with the rest of the Upper School in a special Lourdes Chapel.
