SCC Student Ambassadors Selected for 2023-2024


Surry Community College is announcing two student ambassadors as part of the Ambassador Scholars Program for the 2023-2024 academic year – Jay Mitchell, Senior Ambassador, and Kaylee Dalton, Junior Ambassador.

The Surry Community College Foundation established the Ambassador Scholars Program in 1993 to recognize outstanding students who serve as public relations representatives by hosting campus visitors, conducting campus tours, supporting special events, and setting an example of excellence for Surry Community College students.

Ambassadors will receive SCC gear and participate in student leadership training opportunities. Senior ambassadors earn $500 each semester in the fall, spring and summer. Junior ambassadors are volunteer positions.

Mitchell is in his fifth and final year as a super senior at the Surry Early College High School and plans to graduate in the Spring of 2024 with an Associate in Arts and an Associate in Science. During his time at Surry, he has participated in the National Honor Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS), where he had the opportunity to serve as secretary on the board of directors. He is currently a mathematics and chemistry tutor. In the future, Mitchell hopes to pursue a degree in chemical or nuclear engineering, where he says the experiences and interactions, he has had during his time at Surry will provide a sufficient foundation for these aspirations.

Dalton is a junior at Surry Central High School. She has participated in Interact, Woven, the Chick-fil-A Leadership Academy, and Future Farmers of America. She also plays softball, volleyball, and is a cheerleader. Dalton has a passion for teaching and plans to study elementary education in college. She plans to earn an elementary education degree and hopes to further pursue her passion in teaching.

“Student Ambassadors are selected after having met a very specific criteria. They are courteous, respectful, and strong student leaders that are successful in their studies and involved in the community,” said Brittany King, Coordinator of Student Services and SGA Advisor, who also oversees the Student Ambassador program. “Jay and Kaylee possess a willingness to represent SCC on campus, as well as in the community. Ambassadors will be serving in numerous capacities that will strengthen their leadership skills as they will be directing campus tours, assisting with various fundraising events, and graduation. SCC is honored to have these outstanding individuals serving as student representatives of our institution.”
