Eighteen students have been selected to be University Ambassadors at William Woods University. They form a select group of students who aid the Office of Admissions in the student recruitment process. These students are unique individuals who are diverse in their activities, majors, genders and ethnicities.
Becoming a University Ambassador is hardly an easy task. There are several qualifications and key components that are required during the selection process. These qualifications include good academic standing, qualities of leadership and desire to promote the university, demonstrated campus and/or community involvement and the ability to balance academics with extra-curricular activities.
The following students from Missouri met these high standards: Andrea Ankrom of Bowling Green, Arin Brewington of De Soto, Cassie Davis of Old Monroe; Brittany Evans of Springfield, Kristin Garnett of Jefferson City, Matt Mueller of Hazelwood, Jenna Rankin of Buffalo and Brittany Welton of Willow Springs.
The rest of the University Ambassadors represent several different states: Sarah Chatham of Chatham, Ill.; Lynn Frydrych of Butternut, Wis.; Bethany Hall of Des Moines, Iowa; Jennifer Hewitt of Seymour, Wis.; Dannielle Hott of Kankakee, Ill.; Kayla Kring of Louisville, Ky.; Jennie McFadden of Alton, Ill.; Kyle Rogers of Wichita, Kan.; Emily Thomasson of Madison, Tenn., and Colleen Werner of Hamburg, Pa.
The Ambassadors stay busy during the semester with several activities, such as campus tours, phone calls to prospective students, weekly office hours and other admissions events.
