April 23, 2019

The Calhoun Community College Warhawk Student Ambassador program is now accepting applications for new student leaders for the 2019-20 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 unique and one that continues to grow”, 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 (Friday, June 7th from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm)
  • 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 that they serve. “Calhoun has been very fortunate over the years to continue to recruit dynamic student leaders”, commented Dr. Pat Wilson, Calhoun’s vice president of student services. “Each year we look forward to engaging with the ambassadors to equip them with the leadership skills necessary to mentor other students and achieve their own academic goals”, added Wilson.
