April 3, 2018

The Calhoun Community College Warhawk Student Ambassador program is now accepting applications for scholarship awards for the 2018-19 academic year.

This Program is an excellent leadership opportunity for students who are enthusiastic about serving and representing Calhoun Community College at various college and community events. Calhoun’s Student Ambassadors provide campus tours to current and prospective students, serve as information agents on their respective campuses, serve as the official student representatives at college events, as well as assist with numerous student activities on both campuses.

“This program is extremely competitive”, commented Sherika Attipoe, Warhawk Sponsor. “Each year, we receive a large number of applications from students with very impressive backgrounds, which makes the selection process very difficult.” The selection for the program is based on open slots, demonstrated leadership, commitment to serve, and high scholastic achievements.

To be eligible, students must meet the following qualifications:

  • Complete the online application
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Must be enrolled at Calhoun full-time (12 semester hours)
  • Must be a first-time freshmen or student returning for a second year at Calhoun
  • Must attend tryouts
  • Demonstrate leadership skills
  • Positive personality

Upon acceptance into the program, students receive a partial scholarship, which is equivalent to two 3-semester hour classes during the fall and spring semester of each year they serve. “Education is the foundation to success. Here at Calhoun, we strongly believe that success for every student is everyone’s business”, commented Dr. Jim Klauber, Calhoun president. “The importance of providing scholarships and leadership programs, such as this to qualified students is vital in helping them reach their career goals.”
