FSHS junior Jordan Priddle elected university ambassador
Monday, November 5, 2012
Jordan Priddle, junior in family studies and human services, will serve as a K-State's 2013 Student Ambassador.
Established by the K-State Alumni Association in 1977, the student ambassador program elects one male and one female student each year to represent the student body at events throughout the state and at university activities. The second ambassador will be Tyler Johnson, junior in marketing and human resource management.
From a group of six semifinalists, Priddle and Johnson were elected by a student vote. The ambassadors serve a one-year term, and each receives a $1,500 scholarship, clothing from Borck Bros. in Manhattan and an official K-State ring from the alumni association. The choices were announced at halftime of the university's homecoming football game on Oct. 27.
As part of her duties, Priddle will visit with prospective students and alumni; attend Student Alumni Board meetings and activities; assist with class reunions, the All-University Homecoming Committee and other special events; and assist the president's office as needed.
"I am so blessed by all of the support I had and now the opportunity to portray Kansas State to alumni and prospective students. I am looking forward to connecting people to something I am so passionate about," Priddle said.
She is president of Alpha Xi Delta sorority. She is a College of Human Ecology Ambassador and a member of the Undergraduate Grievance Board, Order of Omega and student mobilization student leader team. She is the recipient of the Foundation Scholarship, Hoeflin Home Economics Scholarship and Brill Scholarship. She is active in Autism Speaks fundraising and Court Appointed Special Advocates.
