Nash Community College recently held an orientation and leadership session to welcome its Student Ambassadors for the 2021-2022 academic year.

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

Ambassadors will complete service hours representing NCC on and off-campus. They assist with campus events, campus tours and promote the college.

“We are excited to welcome this group of ambassadors to represent NCC on campus and in the community,” Denise Beamer, Coordinator of Donor and Alumni Relations said. “These ambassadors bring a variety of experiences, great energy and impressive accomplishments to support NCC initiatives.”
