TIFTON — Seventeen Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College students, including two from Moultrie, have been selected to participate in one of the most active organizations on the college’s campus – the ABAC Ambassadors.
This year’s Ambassadors include Abby Kennedy from Meigs, Lily Harbuck from Americus; Colton Peacock from Ludowici; Jenna Williams from Douglas; Daniel Durrence from Moultrie; Lesly Meza from Wray; Mia McGurl from Jacksonville, Fla.; Abigail Lampp from Rochelle; Oscar Martinez from Pearson; Gracie Bananto from Warner Robins; Laurie Jo Burt from Moultrie; Karoline Wilson from Ringgold; Reanna Brown from Lake Wales; Blake Nicholson from Mineral Bluff; Austin Collins from Statesboro; Isabella Patillo from Tifton; and Maddie Jones from Bonaire.
“The Ambassadors represent and promote the college at a variety of community and college events,” said Abby Clark from ABAC’s Office of Marketing and Communications. “They work to maintain positive relationships between students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community and are a key component of recruiting. We have a fantastic group this year and I’m honored to serve as co-advisor along with Sunny Sparrow and Griffin Bates from our Office of Enrollment.”
To be selected, students were interviewed and had letters of recommendation before the selection committee made the selections.
To continue in the organization, students must maintain at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale and commit at least 45 hours per semester to their service as Ambassadors.
The Ambassadors assist with many college-wide activities during the year including commencement, Homecoming, and Stallion Day. They also conduct tours for prospective students throughout the year.
