To be an Ambassador, students are recommended and evaluated by administration. We like to think the Ambassadors are the best of the best. Ambassadors that stay active throughout the year. Ambassadors help new students, help with ceremonies, and help with 5th grade orientation just to name a few. Alba Ambassadors participate within the community. Mrs. Brower and Mrs. Mayfield personally request help from Ambassadors because they know they will get the job done. Ambassadors that participate both 7th and 8thgrade years receive a John Perry collectible shark. Teachers, Ambassadors, and administrators over the year covet these sharks. They are a special tradition at Alba. I have mine that was given to me over 16 years ago on my desk.
The Ambassadors collect Box Tops for Education, MyCokeRewards, can tabs, and aluminum cans. The Box Tops for Education, MyCokeRewards, and aluminum cans are cash for our school. The can tabs are given to the Ronald McDonald House which houses families with sick children in the hospital.
The Ambassadors support local charities and local events. Last year the Ambassadors sponsored several 8th grade students for a Disney World field trip. The Ambassadors purchase clothing items for students in need. In August 2016, Ambassadors brought in donations for the flood victims of Louisiana. I then drove them over the Saturday after the water receded and passed out items. The people of Denham Springs and Walker heard Alba Middle School and the community of Bayou La Batre several times and were very appreciative. We will be sending care packages again in October or November. We’ll use those funds to help purchase needed items.
Summer of 2016, Ambassadors spent evenings cleaning up Bayou La Batre City Hall and Lightning Point Park at the mouth of the Bayou. Ambassadors also cleaned the campus and helped teachers prepare for the new year.
Some upcoming events are the Alabama Coastal Clean Up Saturday September 17, 2016 8AM at Rolston Park and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in downtown Mobile October 29, 2016.
