RCCC student ambassadors recognized
Rowan-Cabarrus Community College
SALISBURY — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College recognized its latest group of student leaders at a recent board of trustees meeting.
The Rowan-Cabarrus Student Ambassador Program is a group of students who are selected to represent the college in multiple capacities. Student ambassadors reach out to prospective students, conduct campus tours, participate in and help promote college events, and assist with the successful transition of new students.
Rowan-Cabarrus began the Student Ambassador program in 2010. The Rowan-Cabarrus Foundation sponsors the leadership program and provides scholarships to student participants. The program has grown to include leadership development opportunities.
“I’m very proud of the Rowan-Cabarrus Student Ambassadors and am excited to welcome this new group of leaders into the program,” said college President Carol S. Spalding. “We believe that developing our students into community leaders and active citizens is a part of our job at the college. These students will definitely leave Rowan-Cabarrus equipped to lead in their careers and communities.”
The 2017-18 Rowan-Cabarrus Student Ambassadors include Sara Coello of Rockwell; Mai Ha of Salisbury; Mark Hill of Salisbury; Thomas “DJ” Lowman of Salisbury; Jacob Mohammad of Salisbury; Eva Nicholson of Concord; and Damola Ogunyomi of Concord.
“These top student leaders act as liaisons between the college and prospective students, their families, guests, alumni, business partners and friends of the college,” said Natasha Lipscomb, executive director for student success, south campus. “This leadership opportunity enables this prestigious team to develop and expand a wide range of transferrable skills that will benefit them well beyond their time here at Rowan-Cabarrus including public speaking, networking and communication and interpersonal skills.”
Student ambassadors earn a scholarship for their service to the college.
