Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Student Leaders Recognized


 “I’m very proud of the Rowan-Cabarrus Student Ambassador Program and excited to welcome this new group of leaders into the program’s ranks,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus.

SALISBURY, N.C. — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College proudly recognized its latest group of student leaders at a recent board of trustees meeting.

The Rowan-Cabarrus Student Ambassador Program is a group of outstanding students who are selected to represent the College in multiple capacities. Student ambassadors reach out to prospective students, conduct campus tours, participate in and help promote various college events and assist with the successful transition of students to the campus.

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College began the program in 2010 with its first class of student ambassadors. The program has grown to include second year ambassadors, “senior ambassadors,” as well as a robust leadership development program.

“We believe that developing our students into community leaders and active citizens is a part of our job at the College. These students will definitely leave Rowan-Cabarrus equipped to lead in their careers and communities.”

The 2013-14 Rowan-Cabarrus Student Ambassadors include:

  • Marisa Chow of Harrisburg, Cabarrus-Kannapolis Early College, Associate in Arts
  • Candice Daughtery of Salisbury, Associate in Applied Science, Business Administration
  • Kelly Hill of Landis, Associate Degree Nursing
  • EJ McGorda of Salisbury, Rowan County Early College, Associate of Arts
  • Kristina Miller of China Grove (Senior Ambassador), Associate in Arts
  • Jumieya Thatch of Concord, Associate in Applied Science, Radiography
  • Desere Wright of Salisbury, Associate in Applied Science, Medical Office Administration

Student Ambassadors are dedicated to student success, diversity and strengthening student connections. Ambassadors enjoy working with people, are committed to creating change in their respective communities, and are excited about sharing their experiences at Rowan-Cabarrus with others.

The program is supported by the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation. Student ambassadors earn a scholarship for their service to the College.
