Wallace Named Student Ambassador to Keep Me In College Coalition

Dec. 17, 2018

Darneesha Wallace with President Beth Stroble Webster University President Beth Stroble presented Darneesha Wallace with a University coin as a token of congratulations for her appointment as student ambassador to Missouri's Keep Me in College coalition.

The Webster University community congratulates Darneesha Wallace upon her selection to represent Webster students with the new statewide student coalition Keep Me In College (KMIC). Wallace, a St. Louis native, is a junior majoring in political science.

KMIC is made up of students selected from each of Missouri’s independent, nonprofit colleges who are working to build an advocacy apparatus to keep the Missouri legislature informed of the importance and the real-life impact of Missouri’s student aid programs.

As Webster’s KMIC student ambassador, Wallace will participate in monthly conference calls and issue briefings and then communicate about those issues with Webster student groups and on social media. She will help KMIC identify students with an interest in submitting video or in-person testimonials about impact of student aid on their ability to attend Webster and get a college education. The result of Wallace's work with KMIC will be to facilitate and amplify the voices of Webster students in communicating with state legislators on the critical issue of preserving student aid.

Keep Me In College is affiliated with the Independent Colleges and Universities of Missouri (ICUM), a statewide membership organization representing Missouri’s nonprofit, independent higher education institutions.
