Triton class of 2017 received a warm welcome from the Link Crew during freshmen orientation on August 22.

The Link Crew, which is made up of twenty-five juniors and seniors, was assigned seven incoming freshman per member to give tours of the school, talk about high school experiences and to answer any questions that the freshmen had, during the freshman orientation.

During orientation students also participated in team building exercises such as balloon popping relay, Simon Says and getting to know their crew member.

Link Crew members will follow their freshman throughout the year and check in on them once a week to make sure they are doing ok and to help if they need it. They also have social activities once a month: the first will be a tailgating party before the first home football game. "They do different activities during the year," explained school counselor Tricia Johnson. "It's a good mentoring program for the younger students." Link Crew members also eat lunch with their group of freshman on occasion, decorate their lockers for different occasions and give them small Christmas gifts. "We also get to know the younger classmen," explained Link Crew member Haley Staffon.

"We just check in with them and make sure every thing's going good for them."

In order for students to become a Link Crew member, they must first sign up and then go through an application/interview process. Members are chosen by school counselors Tricia Johnson and Christi Kreigh.
