April 17, 2020

The Calhoun Community College Warhawk Student Ambassador program is now accepting applications for new student leaders for the 2020-21 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, assist as information agents on their respective campuses, serve as official student representatives at college events, as well as help with numerous on-campus student activities. “This program is extremely unique and continues to grow each year”, commented Dr. Patricia Wilson, Calhoun’s Vice President of Student Services. “As soon as the application process opens, we receive a large number of applications from students with very impressive backgrounds, which makes the selection process really competitive,” commented Morgan Stayton, Warhawk Sponsor. The selection for the program is based on a limited number of open slots, demonstrated leadership, commitment to service, 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 freshman or student returning for a second year at Calhoun
  • Must complete virtual tryouts activities (Date TBD)
  • 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. Joe Burke, Calhoun’s Interim President. “Each year we look forward to engaging with the ambassadors to equip them with the leadership skills necessary to mentor other students as well as reach their own academic goals”, added Burke. Interested students should apply online at www.calhoun.edu/warhawks. For additional information about the program, you should email the program sponsors at warhawkambassadors@calhoun.edu.
