On Aug. 27, 28 and 29, the Leesville Liaisons hosted New Student Lunches during all three lunch periods.
“The size of the newcomer luncheon offers a smaller, more welcoming atmosphere for the new students as opposed to the cafeteria,” said Ms. Karol, counselor and liaison advisor.
The lunches provided help, and also helped the freshmen meet the liaisons and other new students. Students were glad to receive the help, as getting lost and/or not knowing where you’re going are big problems, said Danielle Rees, freshman.
“It felt good to help and meet new people,” said Alec Kunkel, junior and liaison.
There are many activities held throughout the year by the Liaisons.
“The officers are meeting on September 7 to discuss ideas for upcoming events,” said Karol.
For example, on Sept. 14, the Liaisons are taking new students both to Grill Team and the football game afterwards. Matt Oertel, freshman, said he is looking forward to going to football games with other freshmen, as Leesville has a talented football team.
With all of these events taking place during the year, with the help of the Leesville Liaisons, new students will always have the chance to become more acclimated to Leesville and become proud members of the Pride.
