Chancellor’s Ambassadors Help Represent University

December 15, 2016

The University of South Carolina Aiken Chancellor's Ambassadors represent the university throughout the community and all over campus.  They also work closely with the USC Aiken Alumni Association to help "bridge the gap between students and alumni," according to Randy Duckett, director of alumni relations and community partnerships.  He adds that the USC Aiken Alumni Association Council assists to develop these student volunteers into future alumni leaders.

Chancellor Ambassadors are nominated by campus faculty and staff and are chosen after an extensive interview process with USC Aiken alumni.  The 2016-17 USC Aiken Chancellor Ambassadors were introduced during a USC Aiken Alumni Council Reception at the Etherredge Center this semester.  They are, from left, Jacob Cook, president of the USC Aiken Alumni Association, Jasmine Edwards, Meredith Hawcroft, Michaela Howard, Tyler McIntosh, Alex Richardson, Davis Craig, Amber Laughinghouse, London Vickers, Allison Swiecki, Thomas Miller, Spencer LaMunion, and Chancellor Sandra Jordan.  Not pictured, are Erin Bunts and Nathan Shanko.
