Last Friday (June 1), we had our first Ambassador event for the 2012-2013 school year. This event was intended for our new Ambassadors to meet our old Ambassadors and to gain a better understanding of the Ambassador program and their expectations.
We went to Maryville College to participate in the Mountain Challenge. We went through a series of team building and leadership activities in small groups. At the end, we all came together with the task of getting every group member over a 13 foot wall. It was really rewarding when we were able to get everyone over. We learned how important it is to be part of a team and how to think outside the box to find solutions. We also learned not to be afraid to admit times we have failed and to be able to identify how we have overcome those times.
All these lessons will help our Ambassadors be better leaders as they welcome the incoming freshmen to college during our tnAchieves New Student Orientations. We are so proud of our Ambassadors! This is why we are here!
