Link Crew Conference Held at WHS

Link Crew Conference Held at WHS


Approximately 250 students, along with advisors, attended the annual Student Link Crew Conference, which was held at Warwick High School on Friday, October 13, 2017. 

 

WHS Link Leaders connected with Link Leaders from other schools in a half-day workshop that allowed them to see that they are part of a larger community that is focused on developing leaders and improving school cultures.  WHS Leaders also heard a keynote that inspired them to return to school with a greater concern for the students they are leading. 

 

All students attending are encouraged to meet and mingle with students from the other districts through fun and interactive activities throughout the day.

 

Participating high schools included Warwick, Ephrata, McCaskey, Mifflinburg, Solanco, Lewisburg, and Donegal. 

 

Warwick High School is marking its fifth year in the Link Crew program, and their third year hosting the Link Crew Student Conference.

 

What is Link Crew?

 

Transitioning from the middle school to the high school can be an intimidating experience. The Link Crew program is designed to help freshmen make a smooth and “connected” transition - it combines high energy, fun, interactive activities within a non-threatening environment. Incoming freshman are assigned to “Link Leaders” as mentors during their first year at the high school. These Link Leaders are responsible upperclassmen who were hand-selected from a large pool of applicants and have met the qualifications of being good role models and positive leaders.  They represent a diverse cross section of the student body. At Warwick, Link Leaders are chosen by teacher recommendations in combination with three areas of assessment - attendance, grades, and discipline.
