Event: LanD Crew Speaker Series

The LanD Crew speaker series is an opportunity to bring leaders from the Stamford and broader State and National community into Westhill High School to speak to our LanD Crew members on the topic of leadership, character and skills necessary to meet the challenges of life outside of high school.
