AMBASSADOR OF THE MONTH:

Sequoia Rose '13
Elementary Education

"Sequoia gave a wonderful and well informed tour on September 24, a Saturday morning. Not only did she take the initiative to arrive early and give the tour without prompt but she got the perspective student and his mother to his next appointment in O'Rielly on time as well. She wanted to make sure we were in the office so she reported back here as opposed to going on with her day. She acted with great professionalism and represented Avila University well." - Cristina Baker, Admission Representative
