WINTERVILLE—Though the deadline is fast-approaching, there’s still time for students to apply for participation in the Pitt Community College Student Ambassadors program during the 2020-21 academic year.
According to PCC Annual Fund/Alumni Director John Bacon, the college will continue to accept student ambassador applications for the upcoming academic year through Jan. 31.
Bacon, who serves as an ambassadors advisor, says the college is seeking highly-motivated students with excellent communication skills, along with community and/or leadership experience. He said applicants must also have at least a 3.2 unweighted GPA in high school (if they have not yet graduated) or college in order to be considered for the highly-competitive program.
The 10-12 students who are selected to become ambassadors will receive scholarships that fully cover the cost of in-state tuition and fees. In return, they conduct campus tours, recruit, and assist with PCC Foundation events, graduation and other college activities. They must also participate in leadership training, maintain full-time enrollment status, perform weekly service hours, and keep a 3.2 GPA or better.
