Mobile, Ala. (Oct. 11, 2022) — Visit Mobile held its Tourism Ambassador Class of 2022 graduation ceremony at Innovation Portal today. Joined by Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson and Visit Mobile Board Chair and Vice-Chair, Stan Chassin and Margo Gilbert, twenty-two participants received their official ambassador lapel pin and certificate during the ceremony.

“No one sells Mobile quite like the people who call it home,” Mayor Sandy Stimpson said. “We work every day to improve our community for Mobilians and visitors, but what makes our city so memorable to out-of-town guests are the people. We are forever grateful for friendly, knowledgeable and engaged citizens willing to share the story of Mobile. Congratulations to the latest class of Tourism Ambassadors!"
