Ten students were recently selected to represent Douglas Elementary School as Student Ambassadors for the 2018-2019 school year. The Student Ambassadors are made up of 5th graders and will serve the school in many capacities. Candidates for the program must be responsible, honest and work well with others. These are just some of the characteristics needed in order to help our students grow and become World Class Citizens. These skills will allow them to have continued success in our constantly changing society. Student Ambassador Amber Doane is excited about the program because it “makes her feel good to help other people”.

DES Guidance Counselor Shonda Raiford will oversee the Student Ambassador program. Students will meet once a month to help organize, plan and carry out many school and community wide projects. The Student Ambassador program will allow students to have the opportunity to demonstrate their leadership qualities through a variety of responsibilities. Some of the responsibilities that the student ambassadors will have include assisting in the main office, greeting visitors, handing out programs during special school events and flag duty. Flag duty will consist of raising and lowering the flag every day. Students will learn the proper etiquette of this task as well as how to fold and store the flag.
