The Pensacola State family is pleased to welcome five new student Ambassadors to the College.
Abigail Bott, Caroline Cope, Maekayla Emerson, Jaden McCary and Michael Showalter will join returning Ambassadors – Jaxon Adams, Jessi Brown, Chloe Goodale, Paola Gutierrez-Cruz, Sierra Lyons and Kelvin McGee as they share their unique Pensacola State student experiences with prospective students, current students and the community.
The student volunteers, who receive a full scholarship to Pensacola State covering tuition, books, fees and other costs, will represent the College during campus visits, tours, commencements, alumni activities and recruiting events. The Ambassadors also took part in a photo shoot this summer and will be featured in different College promotions.
Ambassadors are selected based on recommendation letters, academic achievement, demonstration of leadership abilities and community involvement. They also must be a graduate of Baldwin County, Escambia County or Santa Rosa County high school. Students must have applied and been admitted to Pensacola State, with a commitment to attend the fall, spring and summer terms.
“The Ambassador Program means a lot to me, it is such a great opportunity. I have always loved being in leadership, and I have already learned so much about being a true leader through just being around the second-year Ambassadors and our recruiting team,” Bott said. “I’m hoping through this program that I will be given the chance to help other students just like me and I’m hoping to learn and grow from this experience.”
