Weinhold Receives Prestigious Ambassadorship

Sarah Weinhold, a senior mathematics and accounting major from St. Joseph, Mo., was recently selected by the Partnership for Public Service as a Federal Service Student Ambassador for the 2010-11 academic year.

The ambassadors program enlists students to promote public service on college and university campuses nationwide. Forty-seven students representing 40 schools were selected this year from more than 150 applicants.

As an ambassador, Weinhold will serve as an on-campus resource for federal job and internship information, providing “insider” tips on where to find and how to land coveted federal jobs. Responsibilities range from conducting presentations and workshops to collaborating with campus career services representatives.

To be eligible for the program, students had to complete a federal government internship. This year’s ambassadors had internships at agencies ranging from the Peace Corps to the CIA to Department of the Treasury.

The program is part of the Partnership’s “Call to Serve” initiative, which seeks to inspire a new generation to serve.

More than 720 campuses and 75 federal agencies have joined the “Call to Serve” network, carrying an important message to students about government service: it’s not just making a living; it’s making the difference.
