PCC Seeking 2018-19 Student Ambassadors

PCC Student Ambassadors assist with a number of campus events throughout the academic year, such as the dedication of the college's new Walter and Marie Williams Building in August. In return, they receive scholarships to attend Pitt that are equivalent to in-state tuition and fees.

WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College is now accepting student ambassador applications for the 2018-19 academic year, which begins in August.

According to PCC Student Activities Coordinator Katelynn Speas, student ambassadors assist the college and PCC Foundation during special events and fundraisers throughout the academic year. She said the college is seeking outgoing individuals for the highly-competitive program, who have demonstrated high academic achievement by recording an unweighted 3.2 GPA or better in high school or college.

“Student ambassadors are excellent students, professional in appearance and care about their community,” Speas said. “They are responsible, eager to learn, and possess great communication and leadership skills.”

Speas, who serves as an ambassadors advisor, said the 10-12 students selected for the program each year receive scholarships equivalent to in-state tuition and fees. In return, they conduct campus tours, recruit, and assist with PCC Foundation events, graduation and other college activities. They must also participate in leadership training before and during the academic year, maintain full-time enrollment status, perform weekly service hours on campus, and keep a 3.2 GPA or better.

“The ambassador program is very intense, but the reward is high,” Speas said, adding that the students conduct an annual community service project that encourages and teaches them good citizenship.

Ambassador applications can be found on the PCC website. Current and prospective PCC students are encouraged to apply.

Completed applications must be typed (handwritten applications will not be accepted) and are due by Feb. 9. They will be screened for communication skills, PCC and community knowledge, scheduling flexibility and commitment to PCC. Top candidates will be contacted for interviews.
