ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) - Rowan-Salisbury Schools is in the storytelling business, and more school leaders are getting involved. Rowan-Salisbury Schools recently launched a communications ambassador program to further the vision and mission of telling the #RSSExtraordinary story.

“Since taking the helm of the marketing and communications department for Rowan-Salisbury Schools, it has been my mission to further our marketing and communications reach through storytelling,” said Dr. Tracey Lewis, senior marketing and communications officer. “There are so many extraordinary things happening daily in our schools and across the school district; we wanted to make sure we were capturing these stories and sharing them with our entire school community.”

Each school and some departments have established communications ambassadors who will serve as the main point of contact for communications. Many ambassadors were already involved in storytelling in their respective schools and are now working with the marketing and communications team to learn tips and tricks to tell the RSS story more efficiently using social media, press releases and websites.

Some schools are so passionate about marketing and communications; they have marketing teams and student groups involved in storytelling as well. Communications ambassadors recently participated in their first professional learning session conducted by Forthright Advising, LLC, on October 13, 2021.

“It is our hope we will elevate all of our skill sets through our professional learning community of communications ambassadors and amplify our collective voice through storytelling all across the school system,” Lewis said.
