MUNCIE, IN—The Muncie and Delaware County Visitors Bureau (MVB) proudly announces Titus Hill as the County Student Ambassador for Ball State University’s newly launched Ambassador program. The first of its kind, this innovative student-to-student program invites all 92 counties to designate a Ball State student representative. By partnering with the MVB, Hill will share Muncie/Delaware County community pride with the campus community by encouraging his peers and other students to engage, learn, and experience the positive benefits the area offers. This insight will better equip students to consider building their post-graduate careers by living and working in the local community.
Hill, 20, is a native of Delaware County. A 2022 Delta High School graduate and now a BSU sophomore, he is currently studying Nursing. He is also an active member of the Cheer team. A Dean’s List student, he is also an employee of Menard’s at the Muncie location. His witty sense of humor and bright personality make him the perfect choice for the ambassadorship. Trenton Bush, MVB Marketing Director, said, “We look forward to Titus representing our county and having the opportunity to showcase his hometown.”
According to Jeff Eads, Ball State’s Director of Industry Engagement, the program is yet another exciting way for our university to engage Indiana employers and regions to help our state flourish. Eads stated: “We hope the County Ambassador Program will provide invaluable insight for our Cardinals to know what it’s like to live, learn, work, and play in every corner of the state.”
Hill was selected by the MVB team led by Kevin Kirby, CEO and Executive Director. The Ball State program will bring greater awareness to long-standing engagement programs that positively affect the state, including skills infusion, faculty externships, and business and executive programs. These opportunities will add value to the Indiana economy by preparing individuals with the skill sets required in today’s workforce.
“College students are the next generation of leaders, and it is through their experiences and opportunities that they will shape the communities in which they live,” said Elaine Bedel, Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) Secretary and Chief Executive Officer. “County ambassadors will have the opportunity to promote their county with a foundation of authenticity and passion towards generating interest, visitors, and new residents.”
