On Thursday March 16 during Tiger Period, Superintendent Robert Hunt addressed the student body with the story of his son Hawken Hunt.This inspirational story served as a way to inspire members of CFHS and provide a different perspective on life.

Hunt began by introducing the backstory of what it was like before his son Hawken was diagnosed with Leukemia. Along with this went the lessons of appreciating everything in life because it can all be taken away in one instance.

To expand, Hunt also reflected on an example of his speech as he told everyone about the memorable walks he and his family took with Hawken around the campus of the Cleveland Clinic. He went on to demonstrate how just a simple smile can turn someone’s day around. Along with these stories, he related them to how even at Chagrin something as little as saying “Hi” to someone can turn their day around.

As Hunt and his family endured the challenge of their son battling cancer, they were able to use the motivation from friends and family all around to bring up their spirits. Additionally, Hunt reflected on how his past deeds came back around, as he got an immense amount of support.

To conclude the assembly, Hunt discussed Lifextraordinary, an organization that focuses on raising money for pediatric cancer and inspiring students to enjoy life and not take things for granted. As they continue to raise money, the topic of pediatric cancer is unfortunately being overlooked, as the amount of money being raised is having a hard time keeping up with the rate of kids diagnosed.

CFHS has already began taking steps in raising more money for pediatric cancer, as a friendly firefighters and cops vs Chagrin students game was held on March 18.
