Choctawhatchee High School Leadership Program

Choctawhatchee High School Leadership is dedicated to making a difference in our school and community as well as developing strong leadership skills and character development in our students.  Our students will not only grow into young men and women of character, but also be well prepared for college when they graduate.    Our Link Crew Leaders are juniors and seniors who mentor our freshmen students throughout their first year of high school to help them have a smooth transition from middle school. 

Many of our leadership students are involved in the Okaloosa County Student Leadership Council which is a select group of students from each area high school; Choctaw, FWBHS, Niceville, Crestview, Baker, and Laurel Hill.   We work together as a county to give service to our schools and community.
