BGR Team Supervisors

They have gone through BGR as Team Leaders and are able to expand their BGR involvement in this position. Selected in November, they train up until the week of BGR on mentoring Team Leaders and new students. Supers work closely with the Student Orientation Committee. They also attend Supervisor training and help with Team Leader training. Supers are the backbone of the BGR program and ensure the program runs well behind the scenes. As an added bonus, Supers grow professionally and make long-lasting relationships with their peers.
