The mission of the team – made up of students whose majors vary from engineering to history – is to present a positive image of the university to all students and guests by welcoming them to campus, answering any possible questions and assisting them with any other needs that may arise.
“This is a prestigious program at TTU, and I’m honored to work with the prominent young men and women who’ve been selected to participate. I’m very pleased to have their assistance,” said TTU President Bob Bell.
Typical situations in which the President’s Ambassadors will assist include visits to campus by legislators, Tennessee Board of Regents representatives, TTU foundation members and other distinguished guests.
In previous years, TTU’s President’s Ambassadors have assisted during student, faculty and administration visits from TTU’s sister institution, Dohto University in Japan.
This year’s President’s Ambassadors are:
• Anna Ablamowicz, a math and pre-optometry major from Putnam County;
• Ashby Axelgard, a graduate student also from Putnam County;
• Theresa Ennis, a graduate student from Jackson County;
• Corey Hickman, an engineering major from Knox County;
• Cayci Newman, a graduate student from McMinn County;
• Adam Tipton, an agribusiness management major from Lincoln County;
• And Natalie Winningham, a history major from Putnam County.
