Two students at the University of Kansas were honored recently for their service in the Student Ambassadors program during the 2007-08 academic year.
Student ambassadors work closely with the Office of Admissions and Scholarships, volunteering their time to give campus tours, serve on informational panels in Lawrence and elsewhere and correspond with prospective students.
    Andy Stein, a junior from Dodge City, was honored as 2007-08 Student Ambassador of the Year for his record of outstanding volunteer efforts in representing KU to recruit prospective students. Stein was the ambassador of the month in February.
    Michael Rockford, a sophomore from Gladstone, Mo., was honored as New Student Ambassador of the Year in his first participating year.
    Stein and Rockford were among 70 Student Ambassadors in 2007-08.
    "This is an outstanding group of students," said Summer Eglinski, a master’s student in higher education administration from Lawrence and Student Ambassadors adviser. "They volunteer their time throughout the year in order to give tours to prospective students and guests who are visiting our campus. They are ambassadors in the truest sense of the word because they proudly represent the University of Kansas both on and off our campus and because they make the university proud by their excellent example, knowledge and citizenship."
    In the Office of Admissions and Scholarships, Student Ambassadors activities are coordinated by Eglinski; Sara Gillham, assistant director of on-campus programming; and Jenny Hout, visitor coordinator.
