Jesus Vega Jr. has been named Gateway Technical College’s newest District Campus Ambassador and will now be the student voice of the college to communities in Kenosha County, Racine County and Walworth County as well as at speaking engagements during public events held by the college each year.
Vega was initially selected as Kenosha Campus Ambassador. Other Campus Ambassadors selected include Alexis Deschler for the Elkhorn Campus and Devin Hirschfield for the Racine Campus. District Ambassadors are chosen from the field of three Campus Ambassadors.
Vega, a Nursing program student, will represent Gateway at a statewide leadership conference of District Ambassadors from each college of the Wisconsin Technical College System and will also receive a Gateway Technical College Foundation Inc. tuition voucher.
Deschler is enrolled in the Veterinary Technician program and Hirschfield is enrolled in the Graphic Communications program. They will also receive Foundation tuition vouchers and serve as the student voice to communities and the college from their respective campuses.
Nominees are selected based on their outstanding character, positive attitude, leadership, personal goals, communication skills, enthusiasm and confidence. The three will serve as ambassadors for the 2021-22 Academic Year.
