High School High Tech Ambassadors
Meet the High School High Tech Ambassadors
The Able Trust has launched the High School High Tech Ambassador Scholarship program for senior students interested in strengthening their workforce readiness skills and becoming more involved in their communities. The first group of HSHT ambassadors includes three students chosen for the active participation in High School High Tech and compelling video presentation:
- Will Carpenter of Jacksonville participates in the Duval County HSHT program. Carpenter plans to attend college and pursue a career as a firefighter after graduation.
- Jaycee Moser of Clermont is a member of the Orange County HSHT program. Moser will attend Valencia College and transfer to a four-year program with the goal of becoming a teacher.
- Damian Smith of Orlando also participates in Orange County HSHT. Currently employed at Subway, Smith aims to study computer engineering at Florida Polytechnic University.
During this school year, the ambassadors will have the opportunity to meet local business leaders, make presentations to The Able Trust Board of Directors and strengthen their communications skills. In addition, each ambassador will receive a $500 scholarship to use to further their education or workforce training.
