Six student ambassadors from Everest University's Lakeland, Fla., campus recently participated in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in South Lakeland. Along with three Everest staff members, the students raised more than $1,000 for the charity.
Student ambassadors are current Everest students who have been selected for their leadership qualities and high academic performance. They provide support and counseling for fellow Everest students as well as participate in programs that strengthen ties between the school and the surrounding community.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's principal volunteer-driven cancer fundraising event. Although its main objective is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event is also held to spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer and unite communities in the fight against cancer.
Everest University's Lakeland campus is located at 995 East Memorial Blvd. The school offers diploma, associate and bachelor's degree programs in a variety of popular career fields, including business, health care, criminal justice and paralegal.
