Howard, who formerly served an a Student Ambassador, is studying to get his A.A. in Pharmacy at Santa Fe College. In addition to dedicating himself as a student, he also dedicates his time in many college and community events.
Howard was named Legacy Project Chair and demonstrated outstanding leadership skills in helping to plan, develop and execute a 5K, which was this year’s Legacy Project at SF. Through this project, Howard led the team in raising more than $2,000 in scholarship funds for the college’s Finish at the Top program.

As a result of Howard’s leadership, commitment and willingness to help those in need, he was named the 2016-2017 Ambassador of the Year.
