The main objective of becoming an RGV LEAD Ambassador is to learn and develop leadership skills. Ambassadors are trained to overcome shyness and put their best foot forward. It’s up to each individual high school campus to utilize these future leaders to the fullest. Ambassadors can be greeters at Open House, serve as docents for school tours, conduct on-campus leadership events, etc.
Sharyland ISD RGV LEAD Regional Ambassadors recently served as moderators at the spring Career & Technical Education Advisory Board meeting. Ambassadors were assigned to sit with different pathway groups and asked panelists a variety of questions such as, “What can students do to improve their résuméés using internships?” and “How can we bridge the gap between high school and college?”
Business & Industry partners, as well as teachers and Ambassadors, shared information regarding college credits while in high school, certifications in high school,
work-based learning opportunities, summer internship programs, etc. Teachers also shared their goals and vision for the 2020-2021 school year and asked for feedback from guests. During the breakout session, Ambassadors not only moderated but took notes on the discussion for the CTE department to reflect on. They thanked the attendees for their presence and closed the meeting.
RGV LEAD is proud of the role these impressive Ambassadors took in Sharyland. We’d like to hear how your district’s Ambassadors are utilizing their leadership skills. Send your Ambassador stories to: email@example.com
