As an organization dedicated to promoting our community, its businesses, and its residents, we have long been aware that many of our young people lack a true picture of the value of our communities, our county, and the businesses that serve them. We
put together this program out of a desire to give those students the opportunity to take part in projects that would further their knowledge of our community and businesses, and to give back to the hometown that has vested much time and effort to help them succeed.
The program brings in students from local schools to serve as ambassadors at chamber-sponsored events, to provide service opportunities, and to give students a greater appreciation for the community.
Students are selected based on established criteria to serve as ambassadors through the school year, and they are awarded scholarships using the grant funds during their graduation ceremonies.
