Marion County High School senior Mya Emmons has been named the MCPS Student Ambassador of the Week by ambassador advisors Laurie Followell and Troy Benningfield.
“Mya helps to make the student ambassadors successful; she is active in every aspect of the organization,” Followell said. “Her leadership, through the executive council, guides the group in our many projects. Mya will be the first to speak to a new student or a guest to the school. Her public speaking skills are excellent, and her commitment to our work never fails.”
This is Emmons’s third year as a student ambassador.
Emmons is a member of the Ambassador Executive Council where she serves as the chairperson for social events.
“We’re working as a team to plan things that would benefit the whole group,” Emmons said. “We’re trying to hone in on social events outside of typical ambassador activities.”
Emmons also noted the opportunities she had for community engagement through the ambassador program.
“The ambassador program opens up many opportunities that I think no other club can offer,” Emmons said. “It’s a way for the community to connect to the school system through us.”
Emmons is the daughter of Rebecca and Charlie Emmons.
