Student serves as ambassador

Maggie Nelson

Maggie Nelson is the daughter of John and Robyn Nelson of Woodinville.

Student Ambassador Maggie Nelson, a 6th grade student at Cottage Lake Elementary School, was recently selected as a Student Ambassador in the People to People Student Ambassador Program. The Student Ambassador Program was founded in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to promote world peace and international understanding. Becoming a Student Ambassador requires letters of recommendation, an interview questionnaire and a personal interview before a local committee composed of professional, business, and educational leaders.
   Maggie will join other Student Ambassadors this summer traveling to the United Kingdom in a comprehensive overview of governments, economies, cultures, and ways of life. The program enables Student Ambassadors to express their viewpoints, develop new friendships, and increase their understanding of the differences and similarities among all people.
