Nash Community College recently held an orientation to welcome its student ambassadors for the 2019-20 academic year.

The new ambassadors are Heather Haynes of Rocky Mount, Phoebe Prezioso of Rocky Mount, Shannon Fleming of Rocky Mount, David Dickens of Rocky Mount, Donovan Dickens of Rocky Mount, Will Speight of Elm City, Kathryn Davis of Wilson and Angie Bennett of Whitakers.

Students are selected for the program based on application, letters of recommendation and an interview. They must be enrolled at Nash Community College as a full-time student, maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and demonstrate a commitment to academic and career success.

Each semester, ambassadors complete 20 or more hours of service representing NCC on and off campus. Ambassadors participate in an orientation and leadership training session, serve as hosts for campus events, conduct campus tours and promote the college at events.

“We are excited to welcome this group of ambassadors as a representation of our campus in the community,” said Pam Ballew, the college’s vice president of institutional advancement. “The 2019-20 student ambassadors bring a variety of experiences and impressive energy and skillsets to help lead and support NCC initiatives.”
