UA Cossatot Inducts 2018 Student Ambassadors

Pictured from left to right are the 2018 UA Cossatot Student Ambassadors: Ana Karen Beatriz Martinez of De Queen, Jacie Henderson of Murfreesboro, Andrea Jones of Foreman, Brooke Erin Scott of Gillham, Kayle Coulson of Ashdown, Alex Alvarado of De Queen, Esther Perez of De Queen, Lakota Humphrey of De Queen, and Valeria Gomez Santiago of De Queen (not pictured).

The University of Arkansas at Cossatot inducted nine college students into the 2018 Student Ambassadors Class at a reception held at the UA Cossatot Bank of Lockesburg Gymnasium.

This is the fifth year of the UA Cossatot Student Ambassador program. In exchange for a tuition waiver, resume building and networking opportunities, and help transferring to a four-year university, Student Ambassadors recruit in their communities, organize student events, facilitate service projects, and provide support at many other college events.

UA Cossatot Chancellor Steve Cole welcomed the group and presented tuition waivers. “Of all the things we do at UAC, Student Ambassadors is one of my favorites,” Dr. Cole addressed the Ambassadors. “Out of 1500 UA Cossatot students and those who applied, the Ambassador Selection Committee saw something special in you. Something that will help move the college forward. It’s truly an honor to welcome you into your new role.”

To qualify, students must have an exceptional attendance record, a GPA of 2.75 or higher, recommendations from UA Cossatot faculty and staff, attended UA Cossatot for a semester, and are interviewed by a selection committee.
