Ambassador's Leadership Conference.

Each year, student ambassadors  from all Missouri two-year community colleges are invited to attend the annual Student Ambassador Leadership Conference.

Three students from St. Louis Community College attended the conference in late June: Kelly Ngongo and Kathryn Turek of St. Louis and Jacob Wingerter of Eureka. The students were accompanied by Laura Reilly and Meredith Rauscher, recruitment liaisons at the Wildwood and Meramec campuses, respectively.

Ngongo and Turek serve as student ambassadors at STLCC’s Meramec campus, while Wingerter serves as an ambassador at STLCC’s Wildwood campus. Throughout the year, they help prospective students and their families learn about the college, assist at student orientation sessions, class registration events, and community outreach activities.

The Student Ambassador Leadership Conference serves to teach leadership skills and further prepare community college students for life in leadership at a four-year institution and beyond. Each year, a Missouri four-year university hosts the conference so community college students can learn about opportunities and connect with ambassadors at a four-year institution.

The 2014 conference was hosted by Missouri State University, in Springfield, Mo. The conference was sponsored by Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods.


The STLCC students gave a 45-minute presentation entitled, “Time Management for Student Leaders,” to provide scheduling tips, and ideas about how to reduce stress, and attended a number of workshops during the two-day event.
