Student Ambassadors take on high-profile role at Scecina

Scecina's Student Ambassadors act as representatives of the school for various events and help the Office of Enrollment Management promote the school to prospective students and families.

“This opportunity has given me strength in being more social and taking the lead,” says sophomore Hollie Harper, of Little Flower Catholic parish, speaking of her role as a Student Ambassador at Scecina. Composed of sophomores, juniors and seniors, Student Ambassadors are encouraged to do just that – serve and lead their community. This prestigious program allows students to develop their God-given talents and act as representatives of Scecina to the public. 

Student Ambassadors serve the school and community while growing as leaders and gaining experience for college and life. Each May, underclassmen apply to be Student Ambassadors and help the Office of Enrollment Management for the next school year. Students must answer a questionnaire with a variety of short answers and write an essay question on a topic such as Christian service or leadership. 

Once students have applied and are accepted as Student Ambassadors, they are trained on how to give a tour of the school and meet weekly to determine how they will help the Office of Enrollment Management throughout the year. 

Students like Hollie help out with Freshman Orientation, Open House, East Deanery partner school visits and many other events. Most recently, some Student Ambassadors helped with the Office of Enrollment Management’s first Curriculum Night for incoming freshmen. They were able to answer questions from incoming students or their families about courses and share in the excitement prospective students have for the next year. Kelsey Greiner, Director of Enrollment, says events like Curriculum Night remind her of her favorite part of working with Student Ambassadors. 

“All of the students who participate in Student Ambassadors choose to volunteer to be a representative of the school,” she said. “They do not do it for service hours, but because they want to represent their school in the best way they can… Not because they are elected to do so, but because they choose to do so. All of the Student Ambassadors want to help their school community and it serves as a great way for them to gain leadership experience.” 

That chance to work on their leadership, public speaking and people skills will definitely benefit Student Ambassadors in the future. The ability to lead, relate and work well with others will help the students as they determine what careers they wish to pursue. 

For Hollie, it will help her not only in the time she spends with swimming teammates in the pool or on the track as a member of the Track and Field team, but also in her future professional life. She's undecided but is considering in the chemical or medical field.

I generally get those, yet I've never gone for monetary reasons. Be that as it may, my educator went, however, she said the main beneficial thing was purchasing stuff. I feel that is cause shes excessively fixated on lifeless things. In the event that u do go have a great time!!! I've for a long while been itching to go.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what
all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any
tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
