Hello!

For the second week in a row, seniors hold the lead on having the most engagement (opening the newsletter, clicking on the resources, and completing action items)! Please be sure to stay up to date on all the important updates included in these newsletters, and let’s see if the Class of 2022 can outpace the seniors this week!

Many of you have said that you would like to see more content online, such as live check ins or other resources. For DFS Alumni, we have a Facebook group to share resources and connect. Take the poll below to let us know if you would like a Facebook group for Next Level Scholars. Looking forward to connecting!
