Student Ambassadors are a small group of students dedicated to the positive promotion of Murphy High School. They will work on a volunteer basis to serve as liaisons between the community and prospective students. Student Ambassadors are visible at many campus events held for prospective students and families and work in conjunction with other groups when necessary. Student Ambassadors have the unique opportunity to develop and receive training in communication, public relations, marketing and interpersonal skills.
Student Ambassadors may be asked to volunteer for the following events:
• Welcome Alumni and Guests
• Building Tours
• Respond to Student Questions
• Open House
• Student Recruitment Events
• Academy Showcase

As official ambassadors of the school, this group is available to assist with event hosting responsibilities. This elite group is trained to host VIP’s and is knowledgeable about Murphy’s school history. Ambassadors also will provide campus tours and welcome alumni and guests to Murphy High School.
