Nineteen students at Northwestern Oklahoma State University have been selected for a year-long adventure as members of the Northwestern Scholar Ambassadors (NSA).

NSA is a group of academically high achievers led by Ethan Sacket, student success coordinator and transfer student recruiter. NSA members serve as student ambassadors to the university in numerous capacities, including tour guides, recruiters and hosts/hostesses for campus events. Some of the events and activities NSA members assist with are: Ranger Preview, Freshman Connection, Alumni Spring Reunion, Donor Dinner and Family Day. These students also work one hour a week in the Recruitment office and organize service projects.

“One cannot help but be encouraged when interacting with these students,” Sacket said. “They prioritize investing their time and talent to positively impact others. This upstanding group of students has an exciting year ahead as they grow together as a team and explore servant leadership in their daily lives. They will certainly develop meaningful relationships by serving one another and offering hospitality joyfully.”

Students selected to this year’s NSA include: Laney Anderson, Stratford senior social work major; Tyler Blankenship, Macomb junior English education major; Hadley Bohlen, Ringwood sophomore biology major; Jillian Bouse, Woodward senior biology major; Katy Brashears, Beaver senior biology major; Jadyn Budig, Shattuck senior chemistry and biology major; Sagelyn Budy, Waynoka senior agriculture major; John Cloud, Seiling senior computer science major; Kenzie Doane, Fairview junior biology major; Edna Garcia, Beaver sophomore psychology major; Josie Gibson, Hooker senior agriculture major; Draven Hidalgo, Hooker junior vocal performance major; Delaney Lambert, Alva senior English education major; Jenna Maier, Alva sophomore social work major; Jack McCoy, Hillsdale sophomore health and sports science education major; Gracie Myatt, Piedmont junior biology major; Tara Owen, Alva junior mass communication major; Evan Silva, Ringwood sophomore chemistry major; and Noah Voth, Enid junior natural science education major.

Selection to the NSA is through a competitive process including applications, letters of recommendation and an interview.    

“I’m very excited about the students who were selected to the Northwestern Scholar Ambassadors leadership organization for the 2023-24 academic year,” said Calleb Mosburg, dean of student affairs and enrollment management. “This is a great group of student leaders who represent Northwestern well, and I know they will be able to accomplish many tasks as an organization this next year. Their passion for serving is a true example of our university mission.”

The students will be volunteering with the summer Oklahoma Association of Student Councils BASIC leadership workshops and Camp Ranger. The students will attend a leadership retreat on July 20-22.
