MOLINE, ILLINOIS (June 1, 2022) — After two years without their elite volunteer corps due to COVID, WQPT welcomes the 2022 WQPT/PBS Ambassadors.

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 Molly of Denali in to appear throughout the WQPT viewing area.

The Ambassadors are: Jacqueline Isaacson (Augustana College), Wyatt Gordon (Western Illinois University-QC), Regan Tucker (St Ambrose University), and Elisa Schmitt (Cedarville University). Junior Ambassadors Renny Fillingham (Moline High School) and Emilia Schmitt (Geneseo High School). Ms Isaacson is also the groups lead ambassador.

The Ambassadors will be at events throughout the WQPT viewing audience. You can check out the calendar of locations at
