FCC Announces Student Ambassadors for 2017

Masor Borowiak and Adrian Lopez have been selected to serve as 2017-2018 Student Ambassadors. Student Ambassadors represent the college and the student body at recruitment events, campus functions, and community outreach appearances. Ambassadors receive 12 hours of tuition and a $200 textbook scholarship each semester during their academic year of service.

Masor Borowiak is the daughter of Trevor and Jackie Borowiak of Albion. She is one of nine children in her family, the middle child of Jace, Sarai, Jude, Malia, Alex, Quincie, Diego, Jameson, and Libby. Masor, a 2017 graduate of Edwards County High School, is an incoming freshman at Frontier Community College pursuing an Associate in Art and Science Degree in Graphic Arts and Design.

“My goal is to learn as much as I can at Frontier. It is exactly what I need to jump start my career in becoming a Graphic Artist.”

Besides receiving the FCC Student Ambassador Scholarship, Masor also received the 2017-2018 Illinois Sheriffs’ Association Scholarship and the 2017 Genelle V. Jackson and Jessie V. Allhands Education Scholarship.

Playing on the girls’ basketball team for four years, Masor lettered varsity each year and was the team captain her senior year. She also received the Lions Award for leadership, effort, and responsibility in 2014-2015, All Tournament Team in 2014, Most Steals Award in 2014, and Highest Free Throw Percentage in 2014.

As if basketball did not keep her busy enough, Masor was involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities throughout her high school career. She served as the Vice President of National Honor Society and President of Art Club. Masor also was a member of Student Council, Adolescents Learning Positive Health Alternatives, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, Future Business Leaders of America, Spanish Club, Science Club, Yearbook, Choir, Show Choir, and Band.

Outside of school, Masor has served as the Student Ambassador for the American Red Cross in 2016, volunteers at the Hope Center in Albion, and works as a store clerk in her father’s grocery store: Borowiak’s IGA in Albion.

“Last year, I took the new Graphic Design dual credit class at Frontier Community College. It was the first year FCC partnered with ECHS to offer this early morning course. Although commuting to Fairfield for a 7:30 a.m. class, five days a week was very demanding (especially during my basketball season) it was well worth it. This course was the catalyst to my decision of majoring in Graphic Design in college.”

Masor plans to continue her education after Frontier by transferring to the University of Southern Illinois to pursue her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design.

Adrian Lopez is the son of Maricela Lopez and Salvador Galvan of Fairfield. A 2017 graduate of Fairfield Community High School, Adrian is an incoming freshman at Frontier Community College pursuing a transfer Associate Degree as he studies the pre-requisites for kinesiology.

Sports kept Adrian busy during his high school career, participating in basketball, golf, and baseball. Besides athletics, Adrian also participated in many organizations and held positions of leadership throughout high school, serving as the President of National Honors Society, Student Ambassador, Student Athletic Trainer, and a member of Future Business Leaders of America and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

A high honor student in high school, Adrian received the FCC Student Ambassador Scholarship to attend Frontier.

When not in school, Adrian is a manager at the Fairfield Save-A-Lot, as well as a tutor.

One of the reasons Adrian chose Frontier includes the proximity to home. “I thought I was ready to leave the nest…I was wrong.”

Adrian plans to continue his education after Frontier by transferring to either the University of Illinois or Washington State University for a kinesiology undergraduate degree. He then plans to continue his education of becoming a physician’s assistant.

“Who knows, I might just continue and be a doctor.”
