Please help us nominate any student, not including departing seniors, who seek to promote Lawrence Pride and philanthropy with the purpose of making the lasting Lawrence experience better for past, present, and future Lawrentians. The Student Ambassador Program seeks to inform the student body of the impact personal donations have on their Lawrence experience, with the ultimate goal of helping students with their eventual transition into active alumni after graduation.
