LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - The Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau recruits a few good men and women to educate the public on our town.

Eleven people were given the title of Laredo Ambassadors at City Council Chambers.

"We're very excited to add on to our program," said Laredo Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Blasita Lopez. "It's been an ongoing program since February 2013, and I believe our total now are up to 26 ambassadors."

These new ambassadors have volunteered to welcome out-of-town visitors to Laredo, and to educate them on what our town has to offer.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for people that are unaware of Laredo, espcially myself, there were a lot of things that I was unaware, and I'm very fortunate to be chosen to represent this great city," said new Laredo Ambassador Avery Jackson.

The new ambassadors were awarded certificates and blazers for completion of their course.

"A lot of people, unfortunately, have this image of Laredo that is misrepresented," said Jackson. "It takes heart. If you live in this particular city, cherish it. You have to grow with it."

"Individuals have to be willing to volunteer," said Lopez. "It's an all-volunteer position, so you have to have the time and the will to do it. We need you to sign up with us, there's an application process, and then there's a training process."
