ACC Spring Ambassadors
There will be four
new members to the Alvin Community College Student Ambassadors program for the 2019 Spring semester.
ACC Ambassadors are an important element in attracting students and promoting the college’s mission. During the semester ambassadors will help provide information to potential students about ACC services, help create marketing strategies, conduct campus tours, work community events and even volunteer for College and Foundation events.
Ambassadors receive a $600 scholarship for their 45-hour commitment. Returning ambassadors are Gabby Saldivar, of Alvin and Lindsey Walker, of Friendswood.
The new ambassadors are: Lorna Craft, of Pearland; Karla Lopez, of Alvin; Garret Page, of Rosharon and Bianca Vargas, of Pearland.
Craft chose to be an ambassador to make connections with her fellow students.
“I wanted to become a Student Ambassador so I could become more involved at ACC by meeting and engaging with new and potential students,” she said. “Additionally, I want to be involved in supporting and assisting in the activities and events employed in the promotion of ACC.”
Lopez said she has enjoyed her time as an ACC student and looks forward to assisting others.
“I absolutely love ACC,” she said. “The teachers are wonderful, the resources available to us as students are incredible and overall, I truly believe that ACC has something to offer every type of student. I became interested in the ambassador program because I felt it was a good way to become involved on campus and be a part of the community I’ve come to love.”
Page is currently serving as the president of the Student Government Association. He joined the ambassadors to provide guidance to other students.
“Over time, ACC has become like a second home to me,” he said. “This school has provided me countless opportunities and taught me invaluable lessons that have changed my life for the better. This is why I became an ambassador: to be an example of how ACC can influence someone’s life outside the classroom. As an ambassador, I can show students that ACC can be much more than just a school; it can be a home too.”
Vargas became an ambassador in order to enhance her college experience.
“I chose to join the ambassador program at ACC because it seemed like a great experience filled with opportunities for me to learn more about the college and make new friends,” she said.
