Ambassadors

Meet our 2019/20 Scottie Ambassadors!
Scottie Ambassadors are the face of Highland and its student body. They serve as a model for prospective students in the admissions process by showing life as a Scottie. Scottie Ambassadors give campus tours and share their stories, serve as group leaders in new student orientation, greet and serve at special events like the Presidential Inauguration, and parades. Scottie Ambassadors are great examples of the best and brightest Highland has to offer!

I play on the Women's Basketball team, am a student worker in the HCC business office, and Scottie ambassador.

Why do I love being a Scottie? I like being a Scottie since I come from a small town similar to Highland. The classes are small which gives a more personal experience with my teachers. Also, it’s close to home so I am able to visit my family on weekends.

Why do I love being a Scottie? I love that I am able to be a part of history by attending the oldest college in Kansas in my own county. I'm proud to be a local!  Also, I love how small the classes are, but, at the same time, meeting people from all across the country. Above all, HCC has given me the foundation to move on and the courage to go on to other potential places because of the wonderful people I meet here at Highland Community College.  Go Scotties!

Why do I love being a Scottie? The college is located in a small town. I grew up in a town of only 20 people, and although Highland may be way bigger than that it’s still small enough to know everybody’s name.

Why do I love being a Scottie? I originally started college at a big university which wasn't really for me. I was just another student to my instructors, and it was hard to get extra help if I needed it. However, at Highland I've built personal relationships with all my instructors, they are willing to help and want me to succeed. Highland also offers free tutoring in every subject to ensure students have every opportunity to accomplish their goals. I love HCC because every student has room to grow!
