FedEx-HBCU Student Ambassador Program Starts Second Year


FedEx-HBCU Student Ambassador Program Starts Second Year

For the second year, students from eight Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) are engaging with FedEx team members to help the students to prepare for the workforce once they graduate.

The second cohort of the FedEx-HBCU Student Ambassador Program kicked off in Los Angeles, California on Friday, February 24 – Saturday, February 25 with a career exposure and leadership experience where Ambassadors met with FedEx leadership. During their visit, the Ambassadors also attended the 54th annual NAACP Image Awards, an organization and event that FedEx sponsors. 

Throughout the year, the Ambassadors will participate in sessions on everything from how to write a resume, prepare for an interview, and even take part in mock interviews.

This group of ambassadors represents eight different HBCUs:

  • Jackson State University (Jackson, Miss.)

  • Tennessee State University (Nashville, Tenn.)

  • LeMoyne-Owen College (Memphis, Tenn.)

  • Mississippi Valley State University (Itta Bena, Miss.)

  • Lane College (Jackson, Tenn.)

  • Paul Quinn College (Dallas, Texas)

  • Miles College (Fairfield, Ala.)

  • Fayetteville State University (Fayetteville, N.C.)

The program is part of a $5 million donation made by FedEx to this group of HBCUs to help create valuable education opportunities and job readiness.

Congratulations to the new ambassadors!
