Student Ambassadors applications are due by the end of March. However, ambassadors are only accepting freshman and sophomores, due to a need for students to take on roles that current ambassadors will leave vacant once they graduate next year.
“We have so many junior ambassadors that when we graduate, there won’t be any people left, so we want to train younger students to take on our roles,” president of the ambassadors Salvatore Pitino said.
After receiving the applications, applicants are taken on as provisional ambassadors to see how they will work. They do jobs like speak at Town Halls and create posters and slides. They also contribute ideas and write up proposals for them.
“It was good because I got to see how it was to be an ambassador without actually being one,” provisional ambassador Mariana Krslovic said.
After a week of observing how the provisional ambassadors act, there is a vote to see whether or not they will be inducted. Present ambassadors vote on whether or not they think that these provisional ambassadors are ready to take on a full time role.
An application can be found on the WJPS website, and must be filled out and handed in to Mr. Nisonoff by the end of this month. Requirements to be an ambassador are maintaining a C+ or higher in all classes, and being able to come to morning meetings at 7 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
