SK boosters urge residents to ‘Show Your Wolf Flag’

SK Hype team hopes to spread enthusiasm for education in the community

PORT ORCHARD — Wanting to add a positive jolt to the enthusiasm surrounding South Kitsap’s school community, resident Eric Worden came up with a simple plan involving just fabric and a small team of area people.

The result: the “SK Hype” team and the “Show Your Wolf Flag” movement.

With some well-timed Facebook social media posts, Worden’s team of South Kitsap alumni — Cully Ecklund, Jeff Gatlin, Nicky Kenyon and Kim Shaw — set out to generate some community momentum in a positive fashion about South Kitsap schools.

“The momentum picked up quickly and we realized we had something unique to the area,” Worden said.

Since last month, the SK Hype team has distributed about 250 South Kitsap flags throughout the community, with the proceeds from their sale going to the South Kitsap Football Parent Association.

“We have tons more orders already and our hope is that the community will wave their flags on days of any special event or game that is happening, starting with our football games on Friday nights, September to December,” Worden said.

He added that the group “couldn’t be more thrilled with the support” it has received from South Kitsap families, including the school board president to the superintendent.

Flags can be ordered at and boosters can join the group on Facebook at “Show Your Wolf Flag.”
