What is ShadowCorp

Shadow Corp is a student organization put on by Ms. Lord and Link Crew. It is a group of freshman students who have proven to be responsible. To be chosen for Shadowcorp, you need to have recommendations from teachers. Teachers can recommend you for several reasons, from having shown responsibility and leadership in the classroom, to having good grades.

Odyssey allows incoming students to shadow, and Shadowcorp’s job is to show those students around. Those in shadowcorp are put on a schedule. When students come to shadow they get to follow the shadowcorp member around during the school day, so they can get a true feel of what it’s like to go to Odyssey.

Here are some of the answers that were given after asking those who are in Shadow Corp a few questions:
