Applications are now being Accepted for Calhoun’s Warhawk Student Ambassador Program

April 19, 2017

The Calhoun Community College Warhawk Student Ambassador program is accepting applications for scholarship awards for the 2017-18 academic year.

This Program is an excellent leadership opportunity for students who are enthusiastic about serving and representing Calhoun Community College at various college and community service events. Calhoun’s Student Ambassadors provide campus tours to current and prospective students, serve as information agents, as well as assist with numerous student activities on both campuses.

“The program is extremely competitive”, commented Sherika Attipoe, Warhawk Sponsor. “Each year, we receive a large number of applications from students with very impressive backgrounds, which makes the selection process very difficult.” Student selection is based on demonstrated leadership, commitment to serve, and academic records.

To be eligible, students must meet the following qualifications:

  • Complete the online application
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Must be enrolled at Calhoun full-time (12 semester hours)
  • Must be a first-time freshman or student returning for a second year at Calhoun
  • Must attend tryouts
  • Demonstrate leadership skills
  • Positive personality

Upon acceptance into the program, students receive a partial scholarship, which is equivalent to two 3-semester hour classes during the fall and spring semester.  “Education is the root to success. Here at Calhoun, we strongly believe that success for every student is everyone’s business”, commented Dr. Jim Klauber, Calhoun president. “The importance of providing scholarships and leadership programs, such as this to qualified students is vital in helping them reach their career goals.”
