Nominations open for 2017 K-State Student Ambassadors

By Gavin Hargrave

As the fall semester hits full stride, the time to plan and promote K-State homecoming week 2016 has come. One of the most important events during homecoming week is the election of the two K-State Student Ambassadors — one male and one female. Ambassadors will represent the university at a variety of events organized by the K-State Alumni Association and the President's Office.

The K-State Alumni Association is asking for your help to nominate qualified students who possess tremendous school spirit and pride for the student ambassador position.

To make the process easier, nominations can be made online at k-state.com/StudentAmbassadors. More information and a description of the student ambassador position also is available online. 

Please provide the K-State Alumni Association with the necessary contact information of students that you believe would be outstanding candidates and interested in this position, or share this information with anyone who would have possible nominations to make.

The nomination deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23. Students who are nominated will be notified by email with a 2017 Student Ambassador application and will have the option to complete the application via the K-State Alumni Association website.

A panel of students, faculty and staff select student ambassador finalists through an interview process. The finalists are then up for election by the student body during homecoming week. Candidates will be judged by their enthusiasm for K-State, leadership skills and university involvement.

If you have any questions contact Gavin Hargrave, the student ambassador adviser, at 785-532-5057 or ghargrave@k-state.com.
