Gadsden, Ala. — Gadsden State Community College has four new Ambassadors representing Gadsden and Cherokee Campuses for 2009-2010. Holly Johnson and Cortni Potapowicz, Rainbow City; Eden Grimes and Andrew Lewis from Gadsden assumed their new duties in August. All were active in high school and civic activities and all ranked high scholastically in their graduating classes.
These Ambassadors join Edgar Macal of Albertville who is returning for his second year. Macal volunteers two hours per week at the Advising Center on campus and regularly leads campus tours for prospective students.
Dr. Judy Hill, coordinator of student activities, said the Ambassadors play a major role at the school throughout the year. They assist in recruitment, provide campus tours, attend special events, serve as hosts or hostesses, assist various campus offices as needed, and participate in community service projects.
Ambassador Scholarships provide tuition for selected students who are willing to serve as representatives of the college. These students must be enrolled full-time each semester, maintain a 3.0 or better GPA and perform an average of five to ten service hours per week. Prior to selection they must complete an application, submit an essay and interview with the Ambassador Selection Committee.
