VGCC Chooses 15 Ambassadors For 1998-99 School Year
Fifteen student leaders from Vance, Granville, Warren and Franklin counties will serve Vance-Granville Community College as ambassadors during the 1998-99 school year.
Ambassadors selected to represent the college at special campus and community functions are Michelle Inscoe and Arcacia Gooch, both of Henderson; Jason Cummins, Tammie Elkerson and Spencer Noble, all of Oxford; Copper Rain, Connie Palmer, Shawn Burton and Rita Taylor, all of Warrenton; Mary Wardrick of Louisburg; Yvonne Ball of Franklinton; Heather Thomas and Selena Purcell of Creedmoor; Emily Richardson of Townsville; and David Johnson of Durham.
Burton will be the Ambassador for Warren Campus, Purcell will represent South Campus, and Ball will represent Franklin Campus. The other dozen students will primarily be involved in events at the main campus in Vance County.
To qualify as an Ambassador, a student must have attended VGCC for one year and achieved a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average. Each nominee undergoes committee interviews.
Vanessa R. Jones, commerce/technical counselor, and Larraine S. Abbott, counseling services secretary, are advisors to the group.
