Montgomery Community College proudly announces the new 2019-2020 Student Ambassadors. They are Whitney Ferguson, Jacquelin Vargas-Hernandez, Allie Morgan, and Luis Munoz.
Student Ambassadors are selected by a competitive application and interview process. Ambassadors must be in good academic standing, demonstrate leadership qualities, and must be willing to represent Montgomery Community College throughout the year at various events at MCC and in the county. In return, they are awarded a Student Ambassador scholarship to cover tuition, fees and expenses throughout their year of service.
"Not just anyone can be an ambassador," said Jessica Latham, Coordinator of Student Life and Recruitment. "They will be talking to complete strangers about MCC. They'll travel to events and work outside of their regular school schedule. It takes a lot of dedication," she said.
Meet the ambassadors
Ambassador Whitney Ferguson is no stranger to being a school representative. She is active in PTO at her son's school and volunteers at his school events. She is a Medical Assisting major and says she wants to be able to share her journey with prospective students because it's never too late to learn new skills. Whitney says she is looking forward to meeting new people and making personal and professional connections that will help her after she graduates. Her short-term goal is to start her career as a medical assistant.
Ambassador Jacquelin "Jackie" Vargas-Hernandez is already a seasoned veteran, as she is also an Ambassador for Montgomery County Early College. She enjoys telling incoming students about all the activities and experiences she has had as an Early College student which, she says, have been very positive. Jackie is an Associate in Science major at MCC and has made the honors list this year. Her goal upon graduating is to transfer to a university to study medicine.
Ambassador Allie Morgan enjoys volunteering as a classroom assistant and working with third graders at Candor Elementary School. As an ambassador, she is looking for opportunities that help her grow and develop her leadership skills. Allie's an Associate in Science major and has a strong desire to help others. She would like to be a teacher or a doctor someday.
Ambassador Luis Munoz is familiar with the duties of ambassadorship since he has a work-study position in the President's Office. Luis frequently assists with MCC Foundation and public relations functions. He is an Associate in Arts major, is a member of Phi Beta Lambda, and wants to transfer to UNC-Charlotte to earn a bachelor's degree in exercise science. Luis said he looks at being an ambassador as an opportunity to grow as an excellent all-around student and looks forward to an unforgettable experience.
Whitney, Jackie, Allie, and Luis will work their first event as ambassadors on May 8 as ushers for graduation. Congratulations, and have a great year!
