Rollins-Luetkemeyer Leaders Program

There is a smaller, select group of seniors within the boarding community who are Rollins-Luetkemeyer Leaders. After going through an application process, about 14 students are selected to live in the dorms during their senior year and take part in a leadership-training program. With guidance from program advisors, the R-L Leaders learn how to apply leadership skills in their community.

The R-Ls go on a service retreat before the school year begins. By the time classes start, they are a close-knit group. Their peers look to them as role models, and the faculty looks to them as representatives of the student body.

With their boarding expenses paid, these students are expected to take an active role in boarding life, planning events for their dorm-mates and finding ways to enhance dorm life. Recently, for example, an R-L group redesigned and redecorated the lounge in the basement of the boys’ dorms.

In addition to these 14 students, two seniors are selected to serve as prefects in the dorms and are also considered a part of the R-L Leader program. The prefects, one girl and one boy, serve as liaisons between the dorm parents and all of the boarders. They reach out to students in need as necessary, particularly those adjusting to dorm life, and help to create a culture of respect within the boarding community.
