Ambassadors For Central Methodist University

Students support recruiting, other activities

Ten Central Methodist University students will serve the institution as student ambassadors for 2013-14.

Ambassadors play an important role in one of the most important facets of CMU beyond the classroom: student recruitment, according to Julia Costigan, associate director of admissions.

Ambassadors are among the first people campus visitors typically see when they come to CMU, and provide tours to prospective students and their families. They also assist CMU with many other events such as alumni reunions, special events and other activities.

CMU Ambassadors must be full-time students in good academic standing, Costigan said. In addition, Costigan looks for other attributes when selecting Ambassadors such as personality, public speaking ability, dependability, and loyalty to CMU.

CMU's 2013-14 Ambassadors include seniors Kate Kellner, an English major from Strafford, and Austin Magyar, a business major from Boonville. Juniors are Lindie Adair, a sports management major from Boonville, Ciera Kluck, a pre-education major from Boonville, and Ashley Spaulding, an accounting major from South Bend, Ind. Kelly Jo Davis, a pre-education major from Gilliam, is the lone sophomore.

Freshman Ambassadors include Shelby Asbury, a pre-allied health major from Fayette; Kelsey Beeler, a mathematics major from Fayette; Ahna Lupori-Baechle, communication studies major from Imperial; and Cheyenne Randle, a pre-education major from Galena.
