Ambassadors in Action

Apple, Priyanka, Marina
On Saturday, October 7th, SMAS Ambassadors Apple Wei and Priyanka Maran staffed an information table at the San Mateo County Department of Housing  Family, Fun and Resource Expo in Belmont.  Along with SMAS Staff Members Marina Kravtsova and Patty Villar, and ACCEL San Mateo County Regional Consortium Executive Director Ka'Ryn Holder-Jackson, they represented our school and consortium. 

Apple and Priyanka told people about our school and programs.  They also learned about resources in the County of San Mateo that can help our students.  There were over seventy organizations at the expo.  The Peninsula Library System table gave away many free books to encourage reading in families.

Some organizations at the event include:

Novo Job Center

Priyanka and Apple, San Mateo Adult School Student Ambassadors
Peninsula Library System

Apple and Priyanka provided a welcoming face and voice to our school and our student community.
Their work as Student Ambassadors helped people learn about our school and how it can help people.

Thank you, Apple and Priyanka!
