College of Agriculture selects new ambassadors

By Logan Britton

The Kansas State University College of Agriculture has selected 24 students to serve as ambassadors. The main responsibilities of ambassadors are to recruit prospective students and share their own K-State story. They will assist with more than 650 prospective student visits and represent the college and university at various events throughout the year.

Prior to being selected as a part of the 60-member ambassador organization, the students had to pass the College of Agriculture Training program, an eight-week course teaching students about the college's departments and programs. After completion, candidates went through a very competitive application process. They submitted an application, interviewed with faculty and current ambassadors and presented on three words they would use to describe the College of Agriculture.

New College of Agriculture ambassadors include:

Sophia Pitney, freshman in bakery science and management, Abilene; Karly Frederick, freshman in agribusiness, Alden; Brooke Jackson, sophomore in food science and industry, Arkansas City; Blake Foraker, freshman in animal sciences and industry, Burrton; Kenzie Curran, freshman in agricultural communications and journalism, Farlington; Linda Bilberry, freshman in agribusiness, Garden City; Anissa Zagonel, freshman in agricultural communications and journalism, Girard; Elizabeth Allen, freshman in agricultural economics, Holton; Carrie Carlson, freshman in bakery science and management, Lincolnville; Cooper Clawson, freshman in agricultural economics and finance, Meade; Dana Schulz, sophomore in agricultural communications and journalism, Rantoul; Amelia Vasko, sophomore in agribusiness, Scott City; Melissa Miller, sophomore in agribusiness, Sedan; Savannah Stewart, sophomore in feed science and management, Valley Center; and Claire Bokelman, freshman in feed science and management, Washington.
