Moline, ILLINOIS – Regional College students have been making a difference for years as WQPT/PBS Ambassadors, an elite volunteer group representing WQPT throughout eastern Iowa and western Illinois.

The Ambassadors are a more highly trained extension of the WQPT volunteer force representing the station at fairs, community and fundraising events and on television.  It is also a way for students to fulfill their school’s volunteerism requirements while making a difference in the community. This year WQPT will be bringing in “Hero Elementary” character, Lucita Sky to appear at WQPT events the last week of June.
