What does a Link Leader do? Link Leaders are trained to work with the incoming freshman class and other new students who are entering our school next fall. Each Link Leader will be given a small group of freshmen to work with and befriend to help that group during the first weeks of school with any challenges they may face. Periodically during the school year, Link Leaders will meet or call their student groups to touch base, discuss problems, and plan social activities. We know that the more contact a freshman has with her/his Link Leader the more successful the freshman will be.
