New Student Ambassadors Chosen
Ten young men and women formally signed their contracts on Aug. 6 to become the newest members of the Northwest Florida State College RaiderRep student ambassadors. The RaiderReps serve as the official hosts and hostesses of the college. They are well-spoken, enthusiastic student leaders who represent the college at special events and activities, lead campus tours, and assist in recruitment efforts.
The signing took place at a luncheon attended by returning ambassadors and college leadership, including President Dr. Ty Handy. The luncheon was held in the midst of a two-day training session to introduce the new ambassadors to their duties and responsibilities as representatives of the college. They also participated in a variety of team-building activities with returning ambassadors.
The new ambassadors are Ray Bolen of DeFuniak Springs (current NWF student), Taylor Brock of Crestview (2014 Crestview High School graduate), Pixie Fluhrer of Crestview (2014 Rocky Bayou Christian School graduate), Lauren Gordon of Laurel Hill (2014 Laurel Hill High School graduate), Chase Knight of Fort Walton Beach (2014 Choctawhatchee High School graduate), Austin Mallett of Niceville (current NWF student), Daceya McDuffie of Niceville (2014 Niceville High School graduate), Alijah Veneszee of Fort Walton Beach (current NWF student), Hayley Woods of Fort Walton Beach (2014 Fort Walton Beach High School graduate), and Collin Zeigler of Mary Esther (2014 Fort Walton Beach High School graduate).
They join returning ambassadors Alex Andrews of Crestview, Bethany Fralish of Niceville, Courtney Jones of Crestview, Patrick Palkowski of Freeport, Jennifer Paskell of Crestview, Angela Roy of Destin, Rani Simmons of Freeport, and Patrick Wallace of Niceville.
The RaiderRep student ambassador program is entering its fourth year.
