A group of 16 student ambassadors

Bowling Green, KY (August 10, 2015) Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) is excited to announce that they will introduce a new Student Ambassador program beginning in the Fall of 2015. The Student Ambassador program is being created based on research that shows that having a peer mentor can help increase student success rates among college students.

Not only will our Student Ambassadors assist in recruiting efforts for SKYCTC but they will also be assigned specific students so that they can act as a tutor, career coach and help with advisement. Student Ambassadors will also help new students be more engaged with student life activities, said Kyle Barron, Director of Student Life and Engagement.

Student Ambassadors are required to have a grade point average of 3.0 out of 4.0, completed 12 credit hours at SKYCTC and supply a completed application including letters of recommendation. After that an extensive interview processes was conducted to select the current 18 Student Ambassadors. Each campus will have a Student Ambassador assigned to that location. The Student Ambassadors also must complete a two week training intensive to be ready to serve in this role.
