2018-2019 Student Ambassadors
The Dauphin County Technical School Student Ambassadors are a select group of students who confidently lead in the effort to educate others about career and technical education. These students represent the DCTS in many ways. Student ambassadors apply for the opportunity to be student leaders for DCTS; taking part in mock presentations, interviews, and an application process. Student ambassadors are excellent public speakers, role models, are confident and knowledgeable about all career and technical programs offered at DCTS. They inspire and educate potential students and Dauphin County communities about DCTS.
