West Seattle schools: Chief Sealth Link Crew’s ‘Road Rally’

A month and a half into the new school year, we had the chance to check back with the Chief Sealth International High School Link Crew as its members – freshmen and their mentors – crisscrossed the peninsula by bus for an afterschool “Road Rally” on Thursday.

First, they gathered in the Galleria for signmaking and strategy-plotting. You might have seen them in action after that – teams taking photos by West Seattle landmarks and businesses. Points were awarded for photos involving any of more than 40 locations and activities. Bonus – sunshine!

Activities included “picking up litter” and “best Superhero pose”; locations were near the school – Longfellow Creek – and far, including Walk All Ways in The Junction.

That’s Lincoln Vuong, and we thank him for the alert about what he called “pretty much a massive scavenger event around town.” He and the rest of this year’s Link Leaders are resolved to keep the community updated on their work with the Class of 2018:

If you use the Instagram app on your smartphone, you can see the photos by searching for the hashtag #sealthlinkcrew. The Road Rally wrapped up after about two and a half hours with an optional gathering for hot chocolate and snacks back at the Sealth Galleria.

P.S. The Link Crew program – explained here – also is used at West Seattle High School and elsewhere across the country.
