Student Activities

 

Ambassador Club 

The Student Ambassador Club is a service club open to all students. Ambassadors are student leaders who work with the Admissions Office and are responsible for making incoming students feel welcome and comfortable. They share their pride and enthusiasm in being a part of the Saint Bernard Community. Ambassadors assist with Open Houses, Back-to-School Night, the Shadow Program, and more. Some Ambassador service fulfills community service hour requirements.
