Saturday at the Atlanta Academy: Meet the New New Lookers!

On Saturday morning, rising Atlanta 9th graders selected from this year’s Powered by Service attended their first real Usher’s New Look Academy meeting! These new students were introduced to a New Look tradition— UNL Code Names! Code names go way back to the days of Camp New Look. Since 2005, upon joining UNL, all students are given a nickname that stays with them until they are a New Look alum! Each student, new and old, introduced themselves at the front of the room, first stating what their “spark” is and then telling a little bit about themselves. Old students explained how they got their UNL code name, and the room voted on names for the new students. After code names, our “upper classmen” presented on their past job shadows, internships, and other UNL experiences. The new students were very excited to see what UNL has in store for their futures! Welcome to the New Look family guys 🙂
