The ranks of the Logan County High School Student Ambassadors program are at 30 with the recent addition of 18 new members. The Ambassadors program was established to provide LCHS students opportunities to represent their school in community activities. Through interactions with the school and its surrounding community, Ambassadors are expected to be conduits of information concerning LCHS, provide service, and serve as role models.
Admittance into the program begins with an application process which helps to better inform interested students about the program as well as evaluate the student’s qualifications and aptitude. Students are evaluated on their grades, school attendance, extra-curricular involvement, leadership and behavior. Candidates are also required to provide a short essay addressing why they feel they would make a good Ambassador.
Service opportunities for the Ambassadors are numerous. In the past, Ambassadors have worked with the school’s Reality Store experience, the LCHS Open House, Leadership Logan, area nursing homes, and the American Red Cross blood drives. In addition, representatives have spoken to various area civic clubs. This year, the Ambassadors are actively working with the LCHS Athletic Department helping to collect coats for a school/ community Coat Drive and are preparing for an October 30 Blood Drive at the school.
New Ambassadors are as follows: Sarah Beth Hale, Kate Malott, Chely Laster, Hayley Schweers, Micah Page, Maria Wells, John Hendricks, Colten Blick, Bailey Sanford, Hayley Hallman, Sydney Lee, Morgan Gafford, Blayke Bingham, Brea Croslin, CJ Raymer, Gracie Wharton, Caroline Davenport, and Briley Robinson. They join returning members: Hunter Hadden, Brayden Yates, Nate Woodall, Caroline Baker, Shelby Hardison, Caden McKinnis, Dylan Wilson, Makayla Collins, John Mark Page, Rachel Pitts, Katie Brooks, and Therese McGinnis.
The Logan Ambassadors program is coordinated with the school’s Youth Services Center. LCHS YSC coordinator is Ms. Jama Richardson.
