Jan. 7, 2004

FAIRFIELD, CT (January 7, 2004) - Sacred Heart University, like most other colleges and universities, has a major commitment to community service and the betterment of the area that supports it. This part of the student-athlete experience is also greatly instilled in the men's ice hockey team by head coach Shaun Hannah.

The University requires each student organization, which includes its 32 athletic teams, to participate in one community service program per academic year. The Pioneer men's ice hockey team typically performs three to four of these programs each year.

"The surrounding community gives us a great deal of support, so we try to repay their generosity when we get the chance," says Hannah.
