LAS CRUCES -- Twenty-nine students were chosen to serve as ambassadors for New Mexico State University's College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences during the next academic year.

College ambassadors recruit prospective students by visiting high schools and county fairs and by hosting tours of NMSU's campus. Ambassadors also serve as public speakers to community groups and represent the college at various receptions, activities and functions.

Students selected were Karen Browne, Santa Fe; Yadira Cano, Chihuahua, Mexico; Meredith Culbertson, Las Cruces; Heather Gribling, Los Lunas; Timothy Hall, Socorro; Joe Harmon, Tijeras; Susan Haynes, Fort Sumner; Chadelle Henry, Gallup; Danielle Howard, Las Cruces; Juli Hutchins, Los Lunas; Gabriel Jacquez, Silver City; Caleb Kerr, Animas; Scott Martinico, Albuquerque; Hayley Melloy, Corrales; Jeanne Moore, Las Cruces; and Anna Mun╦ťoz, Carlsbad.

Also selected were Amber Naeb, Tijeras; Michelle Paz, Tortugas; Amy Rector, Portales; Jaylene Tharp, Las Cruces; Sarah Thomas, Las Cruces; Kelley Thorpe, El Paso, Texas; Daniel Tingle, Willcox, Ariz.; Jesus Trujillo, Loco Hills; Shelly Vaughn, Las Cruces; Renee Villarreal, Santa Fe; Stephanie Wilmeth, Kingsburg, Calif.; Loralee Woods, Grady; and Kristin Yarbro, Las Cruces.

College ambassadors are nominated by their respective departments and then interviewed by the associate dean and director of academic programs. They are selected based on their involvement in college activities and overall grade point average.

"We require ambassadors to have at least a 2.75 GPA," said Anthony Chavez, program coordinator. "The program demands a lot of time, and we don't want their grades to suffer."
