The Ambassador program focuses on leadership and community involvement. Students must
complete an application, teacher recommendation, and interview process to be selected. They
are required to complete at least fifteen hours of community service each semester and
maintain a C average in all classes. Ambassadors serve by welcoming and escorting guests at
school events, volunteering in classes and at sporting events, and through service at community
events such as the Blount County Sports Hall of Fame dinner, the Blount-Oneonta Chamber of
Commerce luncheon, and the Blount County Board of Education Open House. The Ambassador
program is funded through the Blount County Education Foundation.
The Elementary Ambassadors are a group of 5th and 6th grade students that represent Southeastern at Elementary School events. These students have been selected through an application and interview process with input from their teachers and other staff members. If you have questions, please reach out to the Elementary Ambassador Sponsor, Mrs. Hixson, at email@example.com.

History Club is open to students in 7th-12th grade who would like to delve deeper into historical topics and explore cultural sites. The club meets once a month.

To attend a club meeting, a permission form must be signed and returned by a parent or guardian to Mr. Murphree. Students who don’t drive to school each day must have transportation to get home when club meetings end. Students are not obligated to attend a certain number of meetings during the school year. Students in the club are expected to abide by the code of conduct as outlined in the Blount County Schools Student Handbook. Students who don’t abide by the code will be removed from the club. There is no fee for joining the club. On certain weekends during the school year Mr. Murphree organizes non-school-sponsored one day trips for club members and their parents to historical festivals, museums, etc. More details will be provided at future meetings this school year about these opportunities. Please contact Mr. Murphree at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
