Student Led Organization Provides Support for New Students

 

For military students like Bradley DeThomas (’14), moving from school to school was a part of life — but it did not make the transition any easier; it drove DeThomas and his co-founder, Samantha Ishee (’15), to create a student-to-student (S2S) club devoted to helping military students with this transition.

“I think S2S will give military students a support group of other students who understand the difficulties of being the new kid at school,” DeThomas said. “I also see S2S as something that will help bring the military students together as a group.”

Before moving to Robinson last school year, DeThomas had been to four different high schools — none of which has an S2S club, making him eager to create the club. S2S is working with the MacDill Air Force Base School Liaison Officer to host events, such as bowling, and on-base activities, such as beach parties throughout the year that will help foster a sense of community of military and transitioning students feel welcome into the Robinson family.

If you are new to Robinson, are a student affiliated with the military or simply want more information on S2S, please email [email protected]
