Students at Olympia High School take the initiative to better themselves and their peers. Our newest student-run position, the Titan Ambassadors, reflects just that. Titan Ambassadors are a recent addition to student services, meant to bring a fresh perspective and increased student involvement to our campus. 

Why Titan Ambassadors?

The Titan Ambassador program was designed to create a collaborative effort between students and counselors. 

“Student Services needed an extra spark. Who better to help with that than students? It’s a tag team effort to boost counselor presence on campus and turn this office into a place where everyone feels at home,” Ms. Jasmine Hollis, a coordinator for the program, explained.

Their duties include leading school tours for incoming students, boosting the school’s social media presence, and contributing to the planning of various events that are organized by the Student Services team.

 

The Selection Process

To ensure a dedicated and capable team, students interested in becoming Titan Ambassadors underwent a competitive selection process. Junior Camilla Kelly, one of the Ambassadors shared her experience. 

I saw the opportunity pop up on Canvas, so I filled out the Google form and spoke with my guidance counselor. Next, I received an interview email and was interviewed by Mrs. Lopez, Mrs. Washingston, and Mrs. Hernandez. I was elated to receive a congratulatory email that I had been selected for the position!” Kelly recalled.

Impact on Olympia

There is an abundance of potential within this program, and many are excited to see where it leads our campus. 

“We hope that these students will help us counselors become more connected to the entire student body,” Ms. Hollis stated. Kelly even added her perspective, “I believe it will make a positive impact for new students to Olympia, as well as give current students a voice in the peer mediation process.”

By actively engaging in school tours, social media initiatives, and event planning, these students will continue to play a crucial role in creating a positive and inclusive environment at Olympia for years to come. Welcome Titan Ambassadors!
