Serving as a Pitt Community College Ambassador is a great opportunity to learn, grow, and challenge oneself. The Student Ambassador Leadership program empowers students to reach beyond their potential to develop in several areas, including social, organization, and leadership. This year's Student Ambassador is Chelsea Moore. We're excited to bring her aboard! If you see her across campus, be sure to say hello.
My name is Chelsea Moore, and I am a first year PCC Student Ambassador! Currently, I am studying Respiratory Therapy here at Pitt Community College. I have always been passionate about community service and assisting those most in need. I believe I can use my skills best as a respiratory therapist for NICU and PICU patients, particularly in rural NC. With a background in English, I have always loved reading and writing. My favorite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I enjoy reading and watching modern adaptations.

Pitt Community College Library and the Multicultural Activities Committee have partnered to create a Spanish storytelling and craft experience to celebrate National Hispanic Month. We're excited to feature Latinx librarians across the state to read their favorite Spanish children's stories. In addition to storytelling, participants will have an opportunity to put their imagination to the test by coloring images that represent Latin culture. We hope that you'll enjoy the experience and share how you foster a love for reading with your young ones.
Stop by the Library to pick up your coloring packet on October 5th.
