Marion County High School senior Travis Wiser has been named the MCPS Student Ambassador of the Week by ambassador advisors Laurie Followell and Troy Benningfield.
“Travis brings many special qualities to our ambassador program,” Followell said. “He continues to impress us with his public speaking abilities and his willingness to represent the ambassadors at community events. Travis has been a true leader this year in our mentoring program and was an integral part of the Spring Summit. He will be difficult to replace when he graduates!”
This is Wiser’s third year as a student ambassador.
Wiser noted that his involvement in the ambassador program has helped him develop interpersonal skills he expects to use in his life beyond high school.
“The ambassador program has had such a huge impact on my high school career,” Wiser said. “I became a much better leader and learned how to lead by example and really develop my public speaking skills.”
Wiser was a student table leader and one of the lead speakers at this year’s MCPS Spring Summit.
“I was able to interact with several community members [at the summit] and talk about some of the things we have going on at the high school and at the other schools,” Wiser said.
Added Benningfield: “Travis has been a wonderful addition to the student ambassador program. His ability to captivate an audience was never more clear than when he represented this district recently at its annual summit. I am so very proud of the young man he is and hope his participation in this program has served him well. His potential is amazingly great!”
Wiser is the son of Brandy and Daniel Wiser of Lebanon.
