Grizzly Ambassadors are a college organization serving as official student hosts for Butler Community College . The Ambassadors promote and support the Alumni Association and Foundation offices. They also serve as the president's official student representatives in the community. We enthusiastically live up to our mission statement.
What Do We Do?
The Ambassadors are a helping hand in the community. We volunteer much of our time to various groups on and off campus. Some of the events we volunteer at include luncheons with prominent alumni, homecoming activities and various community events. The Ambassadors assist annually with the Donors Appreciation Reception and twice a year at the Grizzly Bear Hunt which recruits prospective students to Butler.
Grizzly Ambassadors receive an outstanding education in personal communication and social etiquette. All ambassadors receive Butler Community College attire and lots of free food and fun. Joining the Ambassadors will give you the ability to network with key community leaders and employers plus develop a professional relationship with the college president, Dr. Jackie Vietti. All Ambassadors finishing their term in good standing receive a personal letter of recommendation from the President of the College.
