Westminster College Presidential Ambassadors

2013-2014

The Presidential Ambassadors Program provides opportunities for a select group of students chosen for their enthusiasm and college engagement to host important college guests and to participate in a wide array of college and alumni events. To be selected as a Presidential Ambassador is a great honor that recognizes these students’ outstanding personal and leadership skills and provides them with extraordinary networking and social opportunities and experiences.

Please contact Dana Tumpowsky (dtumpowsky@westminstercollege.edu) if you have any questions or events where you would like the Presidential Ambassadors to be present.
