Chamber to Name Junior Ambassador Program After Innovation and Entrepreneurship Pathway Coordinator
GALVESTON, TX November 24, 2015 – The Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce will launch its latest educational and advocacy initiative at 9 AM on Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at Ball High School. The Vivian Rose Hernandez Junior Ambassador Program will consist of outstanding high school students from Galveston County who donate their time to assist the Chamber in various activities.
This program benefits the students by providing increased networking opportunities, an opportunity to connect one-on-one with businesses and Chamber members and gains an insider’s perspective of the local business community. Students have an opportunity to meet local business and community leaders and help the community and show community pride.
With nearly 30 years of education experience, Vivian Rose Hernandez is the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Pathway Coordinator for Ball High School in Galveston, Texas. She obtained her bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston, Clear Lake and her master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas.
“I love being an educator! It brings me joy and I believe that I can make a difference in the lives of many students,” said Hernandez. “I can and do impact the future by producing individuals who are critical thinkers and responsible citizens, as well as caring friends and confident achievers.”
The Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Club is a committee of goodwill representatives whose objective is to promote the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce and maintain strength within the membership. Ambassadors are responsible for welcoming new and expanding businesses to the Chamber at ribbon cuttings, luncheons, personal visits and special events. Ambassadors continue to represent the Chamber while conducting business for themselves in the community.
“The Chamber is looking to grow the next generation of business leaders within our region and the Junior Ambassador Program is an opportunity to pour into these young entrepreneurs and introduce them to the business community,” stated Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce President Gina M. Spagnola. “Vivian has always been a leader in our educational initiatives and her role in encouraging entrepreneurship was a natural fit to name this program.”
