ACC 2017 Fall Ambassadors

ACC 2017 Fall Ambassadors

There will be five new members to the Alvin Community College Student Ambassadors program for the 2017 Fall semester.

ACC Ambassadors are an important element in attracting students and promoting the college’s mission. During the semester ambassadors will help provide information to potential students about ACC services, help create marketing strategies, conduct campus tours, work community events and even volunteer for College and  Foundation events.

Ambassadors receive a $600 scholarship for their 45-hour commitment.

“The Student Ambassador program is important to ACC because it allows prospective students to interact with current students,” said Sammi Sanders, student recruiter. “This way, they’re hearing about the college and what we have to offer from a fellow student. Additionally, they are able to make connections before ever stepping foot on campus.”

 

The new ambassadors for the spring semester are: Sarah Bowman, of Alvin; Joel Castro, of Alvin; Bri Cephus, of Rosharon; Scarlett Knight, of Manvel and Addy Terry, of Webster.

 

Returning ambassadors are: Taylor Alvarez, of Santa Fe; Purelily Ekpo,of Alvin; Sharline Law, of Angleton; Madison Pilkington, of Alvin and  Noelle Rebresh, of League City.

Bowman hopes to use her time as an Ambassador to interact with students and learn more about ACC.

I wanted to be a student ambassador because I wanted to be involved with the school,” she said.

Castro became a member of  the program because he enjoys the atmosphere of the college and the community.

"I decided to be an ambassador because I'm a hard worker and I truly love this community and everything it has to offer,” he said. “I love the diversity, environment, and most importantly the people.”

Cephus plans to use her time as an ambassador to assist her fellow students at ACC.

 

I applied to be an ambassador because I wanted the opportunity to connect with the community around me, to help others and to provide an encouraging and supportive experience,” she said.

 

Knight remembers being a first time college student and joined the ambassadors to help others going through the same issues.

 

I know what it's like first hand to be lost at a new school; not know where things are, what the school offers, or even a single person's name,” she said. “I thought this program would allow me to help people find their way and make the most of their experience at ACC.”

 

Addy Terry was interested in the ambassadors because she plans to help students in need of direction.

 

“When I was first told about the Ambassador program I was instantly intrigued,” she said. “If I could even just help one fellow, or future prospective student find their path it would mean the world to me. In this game called life the paths we come across get confusing and winding, ACC is a great path for nurturing.”
