PENDLETON --- Nineteen students were inducted April 22 as members of the Tri-County Technical College Student Ambassadors.
"This new program fosters the personal and professional development of students interested in acquiring leadership skills by serving our College," said Lisa Robinson, advisor for the Student Ambassadors and coordinator of orientation services.
"Interested students submitted applications for the program, and this group was selected on their high academic achievement/standing, referrals from faculty and staff, and their ability to represent Tri-County well," said Alison Reynolds, co-sponsor of the Student Ambassadors and a counselor in Career Services.
Both Robinson and Reynolds serve as guides and mentors to the student ambassadors.
Ambassadors completed the training sessions, held March 15 - April 13, which focused on business etiquette and networking, making oral presentations, and guided tours to learn about the College's varied academic programs.
Students will represent the College at internal and external events, such as the college and career fairs, graduations, annual report luncheons, tour guide services, community events and College promotional initiatives. Their first activity will be spring graduation (May 10).
"Wherever you are, you represent this institution," said Reynolds. "You are a reflection of who we are and what we are. This is a great responsibility you take on today. We are confident in your abilities to represent us well."
"I can't say how delighted I am with the program and with your participation," said Dan Holland, vice president for the Student Affairs Division. "Thank you, ambassadors, for sharing your time, talents, efforts and commitment to lifelong learning. You have the leadership characteristics to serve this program and our College well."
