Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce selects 2022-23 student diplomats

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce has announced the 2022-2023 Class of Chamber diplomats.

Chamber diplomats are students in grades 11 and 12 in South Talladega County that maintain a scholastic grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 once submitting an application and attending an interview.

Students that are selected to participate in the diplomat program learn leadership skills, networking skills, attend various Chamber events, and, as a senior, may receive letters of recommendation and possible access to scholarships.

Sixteen students from B.B. Comer, Fayetteville, and Sylacauga High Schools were selected as Chamber diplomats. From B.B. Comer High School: Jaelyn Robinson, Katie Harris, and William Samuels; from Fayetteville High School: Kylie Davis, Ashleigh Metcalf, Kathryn Holley, Leah Platt, and Alayna McDaniel; and from Sylacauga High School: Jenny Aquas, Alivia French, Tucker Beane, Lauren French, Estela Padgett, Alana Price, Hadyn Owens, and Jonas Scofield.

The diplomats’ first meeting was Wednesday, July 27, for Leadership Building Day, where the group participated in escape rooms as a fun kickoff to the year to get to know each other. The class will meet each month until diplomat graduation in May 2023.

The Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce provides leadership opportunities and promotes the economic advancement, business climate, and quality of life for the City of Sylacauga and surrounding areas.
