StoutSmith, and Salina will count towards Edsel Ford’s total, and so this Friday, Nov. 10th, a group of dedicated link crew students from Edsel Ford will come into Stout teachers’ classrooms between 8:00 am and 9:00 am and share a short 2-4 minute presentation to advertise this competition to our students.
