The criteria for the scholarship is based on Service hours, written essay on leadership and community, and extracurricular school and community activities.

The Chamber of Commerce says they want to give young men and women the opportunity to be involved with the Greenville business community and allow them to serve as ambassadors for the city and Chamber of Commerce at community events throughout the year.

The program educates these young men and women in the responsibilities and requirements of corporate citizenship. Ambassadors learn about the Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, local government, and how community service helps the community.

Senior ambassadors were awarded a certificate of participation and a personalized custom gift from True South, Sweet Heart Alabama, McFerrin’s Jewelry and Butler Farmers Co-Op at the meeting.
