Bidding Farewell to Senior Student Ambassadors Featuring Superlatives

Written by Sydney Flora, Schmidthorst College Communications Intern

The Schmidthorst College of Business Student Ambassador Program has nine members graduating in 2021. This class of Ambassadors has shown great commitment and dedication to the program over the years. Despite the unexpected pandemic and having to operate virtually, they have continued to recruit prospective students and engage current students and alumni.

To recognize and thank the seniors for their hard work and dedication, a virtual dinner was held on April 15th. Each graduating Ambassador was individually recognized and was assigned two superlatives. One superlative was from their fellow Student Ambassadors and the other was a special pandemic superlative awarded by Dean Raymond Braun.


The graduating Ambassadors and their superlatives are listed below:

David Agnes is from Wooster, Ohio and specialized in Supply Chain Management and Business Analytics and Intelligence. After graduation he will be working as an Amazon Area Manager in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Student Ambassadors voted David to replace “Flat Stanley” traveling the globe. During the pandemic, he won the title of “best social distancer” by practicing social distancing from South America.

Drew Banziger is from Little Hocking, Ohio and specialized in Information Systems. His future plans include working at the JM Smucker Company as a Business Analyst. The Student Ambassadors noted that Drew fixed Dean’s tech problems to atone for receiving three strikes. During the pandemic, Drew was seen DJ’ing a Zoom event with his homemade computer.

Grace Blandin is from Northwood, Ohio and specialized in Accounting. Upon graduation she plans on working at PwC in Toledo, Ohio. The Student Ambassadors expect Grace to have a 5-year Student Ambassador Reunion where you can bring a dog as your guest. During the Pandemic, Grace reported severe bouts of FOMO from the extensive duration of social distancing.

Sydney Cauper is from Centerville, Ohio and specialized in Accounting. She plans on starting the Master of Accounting program at BGSU in Fall 2021 and is taking a full-time position with RSM, a multinational accounting firm, after graduate school. The Student Ambassadors noted Sydney will appear on your For You Page on TikTok. Sydney did not receive a pandemic superlative because she slept through the entire Pandemic.

Seth Daniels is from Bowling Green, Ohio and specialized in Supply Chain Management and Marketing. After graduation he plans to work at DHL, a global leader in the logistics industry, in Westerville, Ohio as a Logistics Analyst. The Student Ambassadors noted Seth will someday replace Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Since he is so full of it, Seth hoarded the most toilet paper during the Pandemic.

Janae Johnson is from Euclid, Ohio and specialized in Finance and Business Analytics and Intelligence. Upon graduation she plans on joining the Information Technology Development Program at Eaton where she will gain exposure as a Business Analyst, Function Analyst, and Project Manager. The Student Ambassadors believe Janae will be a powerful CEO at a Fortune 500 Company. During the Pandemic, Janae used Lysol wipes to cleanse every surface on campus.

Trevor Lotz is from Arlington, Ohio and specialized in Finance and Accounting. The Student Ambassadors noted Trevor will grow soybeans for Bob Evans using another Ambassador’s water runoff innovation. During the Pandemic, Trevor spent his free time refereeing Fortnite events.

Allissa Nevison is from Middlefield, Ohio and specialized in Supply Chain Management, Business Analytics, and International Business. Her plans after graduation include working as a Purchasing Specialist at Matco Tools. With her social media savvy, the Student Ambassadors noted Allissa will someday run Facebook. During the Pandemic, Allissa was recognized as the top paint seller in the country at Home Depot.

Yu Tian is from Anhui, China and specialized in Business Analytics. After graduation she plans to continue her studies in business. The Student Ambassadors noted Yu will spend the summer in the floating classroom in the Maurer Center because of COVID. During the Pandemic, Yu was never seen wearing the same face mask twice.


To acknowledge their achievements, each Student Ambassador received a medallion to wear at graduation and a glass plaque from Dean Braun.
