ACC Ambassadors

The ACC Ambassadors are a group of exemplary students who serve as representatives of the College on and off campus. This program began in 1987 and was the first in the state. ACC Ambassadors develop leadership skills by hosting activities, assisting with campus tours; and sharing their personal experiences as leaders, students, and recipients of financial assistance. Ambassadors also conduct the annual Alumni and Friends Giving Campaign. In return for these services, ACC Ambassadors receive a stipend.

Nominations of Ambassadors are accepted in the spring, followed by selection interviews in July. For more information about serving as an Ambassador, contact the ACC Foundation at 336-506-4102.
