PCC names Student Ambassadors
Piedmont Community College (PCC) has
selected three Student Ambassadors for the 2012-2013 academic year. They are, pictured from left: Sharon Yow of Haw River, James (Jay) Simpson of Roxboro, and Mallori
Eason of Roxboro. The
students will serve as official student representatives of the College at
community and school functions. They will also serve as greeters, conduct
tours, and assist in other ways in College functions.
Eason is enrolled in PCC’s Associate in
Arts program and is a member of the Student Activities Council (SAC) and Phi
Theta Kappa honorary society. She also has been named to Who’s Who Among
Students in American Community Colleges and to the PCC Dean’s List. She hopes
to transfer to UNC Wilmington and pursue a bachelor’s degree in business
administration and, ultimately, a job as a sales director. She looks forward to
communicating with other PCC students as an Ambassador “to help them become the
best students they can be.”
Simpson is enrolled in the Associate
Degree Nursing program at PCC after earning a Certified Nursing Assistant
credential. His goal is to find employment as a nurse at UNC Hospitals or Duke
Medical Center and eventually explore other directions in the medical field.
Simpson says that PCC has provided him with an opportunity to “become more”
than he ever thought he could be, and as an Ambassador, he hopes to help others
see what determination and hard work can help them accomplish.
Yow also a student in the Associate
Degree Nursing Program and is a PCC Foundation scholarship recipient. She is
active in her church volunteer activities. Yow plans to graduate from the
nursing program in May 2013 and find employment as a nurse at UNC Hospitals while continuing her education
towards a bachelor of science in nursing degree. “PCC represents a diverse
group of students, and I would like to make sure every student feels
comfortable on this campus and leaves with a positive experience,” said Yow.
The PCC Ambassadors are an honorary
group of students who have been nominated, interviewed and selected by faculty
and staff to represent the College at special events on campus and in the
community. As Ambassadors, the three students received scholarships
administered through the PCC Foundation, which sponsors the Ambassadors program.
