MOLINE, ILLINOIS (March 30, 2023) Regional College students have been making a difference for years as WQPT/PBS Ambassadors, an elite volunteer group representing WQPT throughout eastern Iowa and western Illinois.

The Ambassadors are a more highly-trained extension of the WQPT volunteer force representing the station at fairs, community, and fundraising events and on television. It is also a way for students to fulfill their school’s volunteerism requirements while making a difference in the community. This year WQPT will be bringing in Hero Elementary character Lucita Sky to appear at WQPT events the last week of June.

Ambassadors have come from Augustana College, Black Hawk College, Illinois College, University of Iowa, Illinois State University, Monmouth College, Northern Illinois, Scott Community College, St. Ambrose University, and Western Illinois University.

For more information and an application log on to Application deadline is May 15. Inquiries can be made by calling (309) 764-2400.

WQPT is a public media service of Western Illinois University.
