Student Ambassador Program

Mission statement

“The vision to serve a diverse campus and cultivate relationships within the community while promoting good will and integrity for everyone.”

2014-2015 Academic Year



Ambassadors are an exceptional group of students selected to represent the College at special events on campus and in the community.

For more than 10 years the College Foundation at Johnston Community College has funded up to fifteen annual scholarships for students who have shown potential to be leaders on campus. The Student Ambassadors at JCC are involved in a variety of activities both on campus and in the community. Some of these activities include community service such as Habitat for Humanity, assisting with campus registration, graduation ceremonies, and various fund-raisers for the College.

Recipients network and develop relationships with faculty, staff, and fellow students that last a lifetime. Each Student Ambassador commits him or herself to one full year of service to JCC and attends a summer training session to build teamwork, communication, and character building skills.
