Center Grove Schools debuted the Center Grove Ambassadors Program in the Fall of 2018 to provide White River Township community members with an inside view of the school corporation.
The CG Ambassadors program is a course of seven monthly sessions that provide participants with a first-hand view of many of the facets of running the school district, including academic programs, safety and security, business management, transportation, and operations. Superintendent Rich Arkanoff and members of his leadership team meet monthly with the CG Ambassadors at various locations around the district to share the successes, challenges, and plans for each area of the corporation. Ambassadors are encouraged to ask questions and offer insights and suggestions for the corporation.
We sincerely appreciate the time and counsel of our previous Ambassador classes. The program was suspended for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years due to COVID-19. Nominations are open from May 1 - July 31.
