Student Ambassador Board

The Student Ambassador Board is an exclusive group of highly motivated and dedicated students that help host Alumni Association and Presidential events. It is the liaison between the administration, alumni, current student body, prospective students and the Memphis community. The Student Ambassador Board also sponsors Mudball each fall, which helps fund our scholarship, the J. Wayne Johnson Scholarship, which is awarded each spring to outstanding seniors. Members meet monthly host each of the University's Commencement ceremonies.

Prospective students- be sure to sign up for New Student Orientation today! Click here for more information.

Make a Gift to SAB

The Student Ambassador Board is currently reaching out to all SAB members both past and present. We are seeking donations from our SAB family that will afford our students the best possible experience and training. While the Student Ambassador Board receives funding from the University, there are additional needs, costs, and projects that SAB would like to include in their future programming. Gifts from our SAB family are vital to cover these costs. Your gift will help to train and develop professionally all of our student ambassadors.


Thank you for your continued support!

Presidential Leadership Recognition

Congratulations to our Student Ambassador Board for being awarded the President's Leadership Recognition award for Most Spirited Organization. This is the second year in a row our board has been honored!
