The last meeting for the Sunflower Community Ambassador’s took place on April 18 in the Trails Room at Fort Hays. At this meeting, four scholarship winners were announced, one of which was from Hays High. The three other scholarship recipients include Sheldon Weber, Kaitlyn Burd and Tiffany Pfiefer from Thomas More Prep-Marian.

“I received $500, and I applied for this scholarship because I thought it was a simple essay to write about what I’ve learned through Community Ambassadors,” senior Kallie Leiker said. “Applying consisted of writing an essay explaining what I’ve learned and what being a Community Ambassador meant to me, as well as turning in a list of all of my volunteer house since I’ve been in the program.”

Leiker plans to attend Fort Hays in the fall to go into Pre-Pharmacy, and she believes being involved with this program has benefited her future.

“It has taught me several important tips in life and ways that I can be successful,” Leiker said. “I joined Community Ambassadors because I felt that it would benefit my leadership skills before going into college.”

The three other Community Ambassadors include seniors Shyann Schumacher, Isabelle Braun and Ryan Hernandez. With this program, the four students have meet three other times to discuss different ways to succeed at life. At the last meeting, a mini Fort Hays campus tour was on the schedule, as well as tips to succeed at any school students choose for the future.

“I’m glad I received this scholarship because every amount counts towards college since it’s so expensive these days,” Leiker said.
