If someone was to sit down with a stack of Clelian yearbooks covering the 60+ years of the life of Sacred Heart Academy, many changes would be evident as time passed. The hairstyles alone chronicle the trip from the 1940s to the present day nearly as well as any museum could! Still, there are threads woven through the annual events and traditions that have withstood the test of time and have not gone out of fashion so easily. These events and traditions link the thousands of alumnae with the students who walk in their steps today, and hopefully with future generations as well.
In particular, there are three events that have taken place every year since the first students enrolled at SHA in 1946: the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart, the May Crowning, and the Musical production, known as the "Operetta" into the 1970s.
