Twenty-five Ambassadors named for 2004-2005

Twelve new freshmen will join the 13 sophomores to create the College of Eastern Utah’s 2004-2005 Ambassador Program under the direction of Todd Olsen.
The new freshmen include Holly DeLeeuw, Tooele High School; Ciara Denison, Lone Peak High; Nitasha Brinkman, Pleasant Grove High; Jill Stokes, Mountain Crest High; Jamie Dangerfield, Hunter High; Jessica Holdaway and Jacob Burrows, Carbon High; Kelsie Knudsen, Bear River High; Joshua Basinger, Box Elder High; Collin Jensen, Emery High; Keena Magleby, South Sevier High; and Joshua Stam, Murray High School.
They will be joining Morgan Hampton, Piute High; Jenalee Richens, Union High, Melissa Spencer, Olympus High; Jen Jackson, Lone Peak High; Brittnie Leonard, East Carbon High; Mary Pickering, Lone Peak; Jesse Holt, Tooele High; Mike Dimick, Christian Heritage High; Skyler King, Carbon High; and Robbie Jensen and Blake Merrill, Emery High. Back for Spring Semester 2005 will be John Emett, Skyline High School and Rusty Rueckert, Tooele High School.
“Nearly 60 people interviewed for the Ambassador Program this year” said Olsen, “Of those we could only choose 12. That is always the worst thing about the process: that we can’t take everyone.” “The Ambassadors added greatly to this year’s recruitment”, Olsen added.
“Their dedication to helping us on the Utah High School Tour by giving of their time to actually visit, in making phone calls as reminders, right down to the campus tours they give, added greatly to increasing our recruitment pool by 25 percent this year. These new freshmen have a big job ahead of them.”
