October 14, 2010 -- The Chancellor’s Ambassadors Program  at Arkansas State University has been reinstituted this fall, with 15 students (eight females, seven males) selected to serve as part of their philanthropy for the 2010-2011 academic year.

The students selected are Alexandria Baum, an animal science major from Wynne; Matt Currie, a theatre major from Cabot; Morgan Fincher, a mathematics major from Jonesboro; Racheal Gipson, a finance major from Rector; Krystal Lathon, a radiologic sciences major from Earle; Chelsea McNutt, a political science major from Palestine; Shannon O’Nale, a Radio/Television and Spanish major from Cabot; Venkatesh Patil, a master in business administration major from Jonesboro; Alex Roofe, a civil engineering major from Rector; Blake Schrepfer, an interdisciplinary studies major from Pottsville; Daniel Shults, a political science major from Pocahontas; Donald Van Pelt, Jr., a master of college student personnel services major from Jonesboro; Harry White, Jr., an international business major from Jacksonville; Natalie Wilbanks, a chemistry major from Jonesboro; and Kimberly Winchester, a chemistry and marketing major from Jonesboro.

A selection committee interviewed all applicants (who met the minimum requirements) over a two-day period.  Minimum requirements are (1) be a current full-time student (12 credit hours per semester); (2) must have completed two full academic semesters; (3) must have a minimum 2.75 grade point average; and (4) be free from any disciplinary action.  Only the most highly qualified were selected for this honor.

The Chancellor’s Ambassadors have been fulfilling their roles this semester by attending an etiquette dinner presented by Dr. Terry Roach and Dr. Sandra Bevill of the College of Business, assisting with the recent the ASU Homecoming, Chancellor’s Cabinet brunch and meeting, the Centennial Celebration Finale events, and serving as hosts at ASU’s home football games. 

Interim Chancellor G. Daniel Howard stated, “The service of the Chancellor’s Ambassadors will be of great benefit to the university in many ways and will provide the Ambassadors with a rewarding hands-on experience in social networking on a professional level. I congratulate each student on being selected as a Chancellor’s Ambassador for the 2010-11 academic year.”
