Linking Youth with New Experiences (LYNX) at Frederick High School connects students with opportunities, such as internships or learning new skills that they might not have with a traditional high school education.
LYNX celebrated its second year, and education reporter Katryna Perera attended both the ceremony and a classroom experience where she spoke with students, Frederick County Public Schools Superintendent Terry Alban and the chef leading students through how to cook a three-course meal.
Frederick Uncut producer Heather Mongilio and Perera welcomed LYNX advocate Beth Sands into the studio to hear more about the program.
“Every student at Frederick High School is a LYNX student,” Sands said. “They don’t have to apply to be a LYNX student. The minute they walk into those doors as freshmen, they’re LYNX students.”
Later in the episode, Mongilio speaks with features reporter Kate Masters about her story on a guitar shop in downtown Frederick, as well as what is coming up in the latest edition of 72 Hours.
A new episode of Frederick Uncut comes out every Tuesday.
