Sharyland IDS Shares Best Ambassador Practice
Dr. Norma Salaiz shared with the new and incoming RGV LEAD Ambassadors during the Spring Leadership Orientation tips on Leadership Team Building. “When planning campus leadership activities or projects, think of how you can make an impact in the following areas: college readiness strategies, career readiness strategies, team building – soft skill development, and community service – servant leadership.” She mentioned that, despite the past year’s pandemic, Ambassadors were able to find ways to continue building their program. To demonstrate her point, Sharyland ISD was invited to share its Best Practice at the orientation.
“RGV LEAD Regional Ambassador, Ramon Rodriguez from Sharyland Pioneer High School, presented Sharyland ISD’s Best Ambassador Practices at the RGV LEAD Spring Leadership Conference. These activities consisted of a Virtual Mentor Program, Community Service opportunities, Virtual CTE tours to elementary students, and District Leadership Workshops. The COVID pandemic did bring various changes to how the RGV LEAD Ambassadors carried out their activities; however, they did not allow the situation to keep them from carrying out their goals for the year. They used their leadership skills to create various social media accounts such as Instagram and TIK TOKS to help encourage students to join CTE classes and organizations.” [Renee Huddleston, Pioneer CTE Counselor]
