SOMERSET – Twenty students have been named 2017-2018 Somerset Community College (SCC) student ambassadors. 

These students, who must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average, represent and promote the college at campus and community events, include Lincoln County’s own Amanda Warfield and Cas McGuffey.

As student ambassadors, they assist with recruiting efforts, campus tours and provide information about SCC to prospective students, school groups and the general public.

To be selected as a student ambassador, students must not only maintain good grades, but also have a positive attitude, a genuine interest in assisting others, excellent interpersonal communication skills and must project a positive image of the college. Student ambassadors are required to work 40 hours each semester and receive a scholarship equivalent to six class credit hours per semester.

Students chosen as ambassadors received training in areas such as professional etiquette, leadership, knowledge of SCC, communication skills and customer service.
