Taking a break to dance with Douglas High’s Link Crew

Chrissy McLaughlin

After all the long hours logged away learning in a classroom, it’s fantastic to have an opportunity to relax, socialize with friends, and ultimately dance the night away. The newly established Link Crew Program at Douglas High School shares this belief.

Thanks to the generous funding of The Douglas County Education Foundation, the Link Crew Program has the ability to create school events exclusively for the sophomore class. The purpose of this program gives seniors and juniors the ability to easily intersperse themselves among the sophomores and to encourage them to get involved with school events. In order for this goal to be fulfilled, Link Crew members meet with their advisor, Milko Vasquez, to plan these activities.

Oct. 1 was the first Link Crew hosted dance at Douglas High School. The mesmerizing strobe lights, blaring music, and vibrant black lights ensured this event to be a significant success.

As a Link Crew member myself, I was thrilled to see the high attendance rate of the sophomores. It was also inspiring to witness how eager the sophomores were to actually dance and socialize with one another. This dance was definitely a promising sign that the Link Crew is positively impacting the class of 2014.
