Fifteen Students Selected as 2019-20 Walton Ambassadors
A select group of 15 Sam M. Walton College of Business students will serve as the college's ambassadors for the 2019-20 school year.
The student ambassadors are selected each year to assist Walton College's Undergraduate Programs Office with recruitment by leading tours and other activities that showcase the college and all it has to offer business students.
"It was very difficult to narrow the selection down to just these 15 from the number of great Walton College students who wish to help us with our recruiting of new students and serving as a resource for those students and their parents," said Sierra Hayes, undergraduate recruiter in the Walton College Undergraduate Programs Office. "These students really excel at sharing their positive college experiences with prospective students and their families throughout the year."
