Ambassadors Chosen To Represent VGCC

A baker’s dozen outstanding students have been chosen by Vance-Granville Community College to serve as Ambassadors during the 2002-2003 school year.

Selected to represent the college at special campus and community functions are Lynsay Allen, a Radiography student, and College Transfer student Adam Copeland, both of Franklinton; Stacy Freshour, Cosmetology, Jacqueline Reese, Human Services Technology, and Phillip Riggan, College Transfer, all of Henderson; Stacey Moser of Kittrell, Criminal Justice Technology; Yvonne Faison of Oxford and Stephanie Parrish of Creedmoor, both Human Services Technology students; Tammy Gallagher of Norlina, Associate Degree Nursing; and Janet White of Roxboro, Radiography.

Connie Senter of Louisburg, an Accounting student, will represent the Franklin County Campus, Catherine Jackson of Oxford, Medical Office Administration, will be the South Campus Ambassador, and Hannah Bullock of Warrenton, an Information Systems student, will represent the Warren County Campus.

To qualify as an Ambassador, a student must have attended VGCC for one year and have achieved a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average. Each nominee undergoes committee interviews.

Ambassadors receive special training through workshops covering leadership, motivation, hospitality and etiquette. In order for them to be helpful andresponsive to visitors, they receive instruction in college history and college programs and services.

Their duties include serving as guides or hosts and hostesses at events such as graduation, orientation for new students, annual scholarship awards ceremonies, college-sponsored concerts and activities at the Civic Center, and annual Career Day. The new Ambassadors have already been active in assisting during orientation sessions held for new Fall Semester 2002 students.

For their services to the college, Ambassadors receive a scholarship and a VGCC blazer.

Vanessa R. Jones, dean of Student Development and Advancement Services, and Cindy Jackson, counseling services secretary, are advisors to the Ambassadors.
