CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (WNCT) – Switching to a new school can be difficult for many students.
But a new group at Camp Lejeune is hoping to make the transition easier.
Student ambassadors at Lejeune High School are helping new students out.
The group is made up of about 20 peers who assist new classmates with learning their way around school and whatever else they may need.
The school’s liaison officer said the ambassadors play a key role in making sure military children are successful in class.
“They’re usually leaders,” explained Julie Fulton, Marine Corps school liaison officer. “They’re outgoing students, but we like to get a nice mix because we want to match up our new students with students who have similar interests. So we want kids who do band and students who are good at sports and students who are strong academically and a nice broad range.”
The ambassador program is for all students, both military and civilian.
