PBHS: Student Ambassadors host Freshman Orientation
Student ambassadors consisting of nearly 60 upperclassman led Freshman Orientation on Thursday, Aug. 7, at Poplar Bluff High School, holding competitions in E.T. Peters Gym to serve as an icebreaker, and then breaking up the 318 new students in attendance into smaller groups to play games, get questions answered and tour campus.
“I can’t begin to tell you how incredibly proud I am of the ambassadors,” said PBHS math teacher Hope Conover, Student Council sponsor. “They were phenomenal representatives of our school and did a fabulous job of being true leaders.”
An idea that StuCo came up with this year, ambassadors plan on checking in with their group of freshmen once a month during advisory, helping to establish a seamless transition from Junior to Senior High.
