The HIVE OF FAME is a chance to recognize our ambassadors for their exemplary work. Ambassadors are nominated by their coordinator at the end of each month using Involvement Assessment worksheets, and each nomination must include a statement stating why the nominee is a top candidate. After reviewing all nominations, the ambassador coordinators and program directors choose the monthly winner. Each recipient takes a photo with the mascot, Art T. Bee, and receives a certificate for their achievements.
These SUPER SMILEY ladies continue to make us proud to have them as ambassadors day after day!
Our first Hive of Famer for March is one we can always depend on. She volunteers relentlessly and always does it with a beautiful smile on her face! She has logged the most volunteer hours this past month by always stepping up to the plate in many respects. She is one of our beloved Student Life Tour Guides and I can’t believe it is only her first year as an ambassador. Vanessa Pennell, where have you been all our lives?!
But why stop there? Our second Hive of Famer is someone truly special to the group. Her contagious laughter and energy for the program have kept us all excited to belong to this group. She steps in when we need help and has shown to be on top of her game, all while possessing a tremendously positive dedication. Rachel Leathers is one of the best around!
Congratulations and welcome to the Hive of Fame guys!!
“One of my favorite classes at SCAD was a Foundations Course titled 2-D Design. It was one of the first classes I took when I transferred into SCAD; it really made me fall in love with the school. My teacher was David Rousseau; although his projects were difficult, they were so much fun! He challenged us regularly and made us think outside the box to create visually interesting 2-D designs. For our final project in his class, we made “phobia kites”. I took his class in the fall so we began designing these just after Halloween. I chose to make a kite illustrating Apiphobia, also known as a fear of bees. On our last day of class and as our final we went to Tybee Island with the whole class and spent the morning flying them. It was such a fun experience seeing our work flying through the sky.”-Ambassador Vanessa Pennell
Another Double Hive of Fame! Despite this being their very first year as an ambassador, these girls have been incredibly involved and deserving of a little recognition! Both are cheerful, engaging, smiling personalities- which is exactly what we look for in a SCAD Ambassador!
She has been described as “an absolute delight to work with on SCAD Day.” This month alone she attended 8 events this quarter- 5 more than she needed, as well as a total of 46 hours! That’s not including the 80 hours a week that she work as an RA! Congratulations Ruzanna!
At 7 events and 43 hours this quarter alone, this DJ continues to blow us away! It’s no wonder this awesome student life tour guide was recently awarded a ‘Radio’s Best Voice Award’ by SCAD Radio! That’s right- this girl has her own radio show on SCAD Radio! Let’s give our Congratulations to Kitty Tomblin!
Welcome to the Hive of Fame, ladies!

Students and Isle of Hope art teacher Magen Peigelbeck were surprised Friday afternoon when we invaded the school with gifts of art supplies and a short performance of SCAD’s recent production, ”The Three Musketeers”. Students, staff, ambassador volunteers and mascot Art The Bee from SCAD boarded the Buzz Bus and brought the department pastels, paper and other needed art supplies. “We’re just really excited and really, really happy to be reaching out to local schools like Isle of Hope and donating and making a change in kids’ life,” said Tineke Klaassen, SCAD Young at Art Coordinator. Isle of Hope Elementary was selected to receive the items because of its status as a Title I school, which means it has a significant number of students who are economically disadvantaged and an annual art supply budget of $500, less than $1 for each of the 750 students enrolled, said SCAD spokeswoman Ally Hughes. “Our budget is so limited that we have to stretch very little money out over the year,” said Julie Gannam, Isle of Hope Principal. “To get these supplies is priceless.” To date, the SCAD Buzz Bus program has worked with more than 4,000 Savannah children at local elementary and middle schools!
