09/18/17: CHS Student Ambassadors Encourage Voting CHS Student Ambassadors

Dressing up as the Statue of Liberty is one of the perks of being a Secretary of State Student Ambassador. Layten Robinson, a Callaway High senior, knew it would draw attention to the groups polling tent during a recent Friday night football game. Robinson, along with eight other Callaway High (CHS) students, were named Ambassadors by their teachers. This is a great honor according to Ranise Hobbs, a senior, “our teachers nominated us based on our grades and as future leaders.”

The purpose of the Ambassador program is to engage students and the community in registering to vote. Lewis says, “It is also about the importance of people understanding why they should register and why they should vote.” Robinson shared the same sentiments and added, “We increase political efficacy and political involvement within our community.”
