Meet the New Student Ambassadors


There will be three new faces joining the Alvin Community College Student Ambassadors for the fall 2014 semester.

ACC Ambassadors are an important element in attracting students and promoting the college’s mission. During the fall semester ambassadors will help provide information to potential students about ACC services, help create marketing strategies, conduct campus tours, work community events and even volunteer for College and Foundation events.

Ambassadors receive a $600 scholarship for their 40 hour commitment.

“It’s a great way for the students to learn leadership and public speaking skills,” ACC student recruiter Liz Sitta said. “Throughout the program, they learn that our middle name is ‘Community’ therefore we believe in being the liaison between the community and the college.”

The new ambassadors for the fall semester are Brittany San Miguel, of Alvin; Jeanae Jackson, of Texas City and Madison Goss, of Alvin.

The returning ambassadors are Erik Hollen, 20, of Houston; Michelle Manuel, 19, of Alvin; Grace Windsor, 20, of Santa Fe; Saydi Wollney, 21, of Pearland; Zachary Davis, 22, of Manvel, Ashley Mello, 20, of Pearland; Ashlyn Turner, 20, of Alvin and Reagan Huber, 20, of Alvin.

Brittany San Miguel is a Drama major who joined the ambassadors in order to gain valuable experience working with students.

“The Ambassador program is overloaded with opportunities,” she said.

Jeanae Jackson is also pursuing a Drama degree and hopes to provide assistance to her fellow students.

“The ambassador program is a family-filled environment,” she said. “The people are great and I’ve experienced so many great opportunities here.”

Goss decided to join the program after meeting some of the current ambassadors and seeing the value they brought to the college.

“Being a Student Ambassador is benefiting me because it is helping me learn the campus and letting me be able to give back to the community by being one of the Faces of ACC,” she said. “I believe we are going to have a fun year and I’m ready to see what’s in store for us.”
