    To help integrate families into our school and community and help make the transition easy when moving in, we have a group of Student Council Ambassadors. These ambassadors are available to families or companies for meetings or tours. Below are some examples of what they have done in the community so far this year. If you or your company is interested in utilizing the Ambassadors meetings or tours, please contact Amy Polivka at polivka@watford-city.k12.nd.us.

    The WCHS student council ambassadors group and Payton Morris of the CWE program attended the API BANQUET in Williston. The group attended as guests of keynote speaker, Pat Bertagnoli. He talked to the API members about employee retention and the power of community partnerships. The ambassadors networked with many oil field executives and western ND politicians and hope to continue partnering with many businesses recruiting employees to the Baaken!

    Jason Spiess visited Watford City High School to start a new slice of interviews, podcasts, radio segments and print features with high school students. With the help of The Crude Life, Patrick Bertagnolli, SHRM-SCP and some of our awesome student council ambassadors, they were able to do a live recording session on their thoughts, views and experiences while 'Living the Crude Life'.
