Morgan Community College (MCC), in Brush, Colo. continues to offer its Student Ambassadors' Program, now in its fourth year, to area high school students. Ambassadors are high school representatives who recruit for MCC on a monthly basis by doing a presentation to a high school club or class or attend a community event with MCC.

The MCC ambassadors for the 2012-13 school year are Jordan Deslauriers, McKenzie Tophoj, Katelynn Lippitt and Nadeen Ibrahim.

A senior at Fort Morgan High School, Tophoj is also a first year ambassador, though she has been in the Health Science Technology (HST) program at MCC for two years. "Being in the HST program has helped me decide what to do with my life," said Tophoj. "I think it's a great opportunity for any student that wants to go into a health related field."
