The Student Ambassador program provides leadership, philanthropy, volunteerism and networking opportunities for Edmond Public Schools high school students.  They learn about public education, the Edmond Public Schools district and their community and learn how to give back to the district that has given so much to them.  You will find students speaking at public events, conducting fundraisers, holding food drives for the district, volunteering in the schools, advocating on social media and so much more!  Support them by donating to the programs they support through the EPS Foundation including mental health, Art in Schools, classroom support and the Celebration of Excellence where Teacher of the Year, Support Personnel of the Year and Rookie Teacher of the Year are announced.
