Lincoln, Neb. —The Animal Science Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has appointed two new student ambassadors for the 2022 - 2023 academic year.
After in-depth interviews with department faulty and second-year ambassadors, two students were selected out of a pool of nine applicants:
- Nick Prosek, a freshman from Lodi, Wis.
- Kylie Dierks, a sophomore from Hastings, Neb.
The two new ambassadors will serve alongside current second-year ambassadors:
- Laura Reiling, a junior from Malcolm, Neb.
- Sarah Dilley, a sophomore from Lincoln, Neb.
The ambassadors will interact with prospective animal science students by visiting high schools and attending various university admissions events. In addition to attending and supporting events, each ambassador will also take on the responsibility of planning one recruitment activity per year.
The Animal Science Student Ambassador program, started in 1999, selects two animal science majors as ambassadors to promote the animal science program each year. Students receive a $2,000 scholarship ($500 each semester) and serve for two years supporting the department’s recruitment efforts.
