New Emissaries Will Lead Under New Name

Aurelia Caine, Sports Editor

The 2017-2018 school year is coming to an end, and it is time for the juniors to apply for one of the highest honors as a student at MSMS. Shelia Westbrook, Director for Advancement, hosted an interest meeting for the ones who wanted to apply for the position of being leaders for the school.

Emissary Carey Williams explained what his job meant from his perspective.

“To be an Emissary not only means to represent the school well, but also to genuinely care about the school and its well being. Without that, there is no way to fulfill the duties of a MSMS Emissary,” Williams said.

During the meeting, Westbrook also revealed that Emissaries will now be referred to as Ambassadors. She covered the requirements and qualities needed to become a MSMS Ambassador and warned them that it wouldn’t be easy and that they needed to be dedicated to the job. These are the first faces that the new students see.

Tyler Branch shares his story when he was an incoming junior.

“When I came for orientation day, I saw the students in the light blue shirts welcoming my class. I saw how excited they were to accept us into the school. After that, I knew when I came to MSMS I wanted to try to be an Emissary. When people come onto our campus, I would like to make them feel like they are a part of MSMS family and set a great image for my school,” Branch said.

The meeting was convened in Hooper Auditorium, but multiple students were not able to attend due to the tennis matches and mentorship at the Boys and Girls Club. Though they were absent from the meeting, many of them still plan on getting their packets and applying. Many juniors are excited and ready to take on the responsibility.

“I really hope I do have the chance to become an ambassador next school year. I feel like I could really relate to the student who might have a hard time adjusting to the school, and I would like to be there for them. I’m excited to see how things turn out,” junior Sophia Garcia said.
