FACS Student Ambassadors provide tours and hospitality throughout the year during previews and open houses, develop and oversee leadership projects that benefit the school community, develop and conduct community service projects, and may choose to participate in special student leadership training opportunities.
For the past several years, Student Ambassadors have held fundraising events and used the proceeds to purchase monogrammed Bibles for our school's seventh graders.
Service and leadership projects have included a don't text and drive campaign, a campaign to raise funds for faculty development programs, and hosting a nationally recognized speaker whose military hero story was made famous by the movie "Black Hawk Down." Guests at the military assembly included student leaders from other schools who joined FACS secondary students for the presentation.
Several Student Ambassadors have traveled with the school to Student Leadership University training programs in Orlando, Washington, D.C., and Europe (Normandy, Oxford, London, and Paris). The specialized training they received focused on Biblical worldview and cultural impact.
The Student Ambassador Program is open to all qualified FACS students in grades 9-12. Interested students submit applications in the spring. Applications are reviewed by Head of School Wendell Meadows and Secondary Principal Joe Newman with consideration given to students with consistently positive character, conduct, and academic performance. The Student Ambassador Program is sponsored by Communications Director Deborah Wade.
