Cookeville, Tennessee - A total of 12 Tennessee Tech students has made the cut to serve as President’s Ambassadors for the 2022-2023 academic year, including Ethan Jenkins and Faith Judkins, both from Smithville, and William Pursell from Liberty.
The mission of this special campus group – made up of students whose majors vary from marketing to cybersecurity to finance and more – 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 other needs that may arise.
“This is a prestigious program that represents the best our students have to offer,” said President Phil Oldham. “We plan to continue to grow this group to foster goodwill at our university events and partnerships with our community.”
The President’s Ambassadors serve as hosts for special guests on campus, including legislators, donors, members of the Tech Board of Trustees, alumni and more.
Jenkins, who is an undergraduate student in cybersecurity and information assurance, and Judkins, who is an undergraduate student in finance, will serve in the group for the next academic year.
Judkins will also serve in a leadership position as the group’s secretary/treasurer.
Pursell, who is an undergraduate student in accounting, will serve in the group during the next academic year.
Tennessee Tech is ranked as a “Best National University” by U.S. News & World Report. The university offers more than 200-plus programs of study, and Tech grads leave with the least debt of all public universities in the state. In fact, based on total cost and alumni earnings, Tech provides students with the highest return on investment for any public university in Tennessee, according to PayScale.
