Scholars Learn Lessons from Pete Carroll and the Seahawks

Last week our youngest scholars created a comparison and contrast study of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll's Win Forever framework with the Rainier Scholars program. The common goal of each approach is clear - work to maximize your potential. From performance to environment to beliefs, the scholars were able to create their own pyramid of success.

Performance
Know you are going to college.
Know you are going to succeed.

Environment
It's not about the talent - it's about the work.
Always try to be your best despite things around you.
Be willing to take risks. Have Hope.
 
Philosophy
Every failure, mistake or success is a lesson.
Think smart. Make smart choices.
Believe in yourself.
Give your all. Do more than you can do.
Lift those around you.
 
Beliefs
Never give up, no excuses
It's all about the work.
Effort Counts. Persevere.
Look out for each other. Be a team.

Coach Pete Carroll says - If you want to win forever, always compete.

At Rainier Scholars we believe - If you want to graduate from college, always work hard.
