Liz Wells first Samford Brand Ambassador

Wells the "Face of Samford"

The first in a new Marketing initiative, Liz Wells was named a Brand Ambassador, along with junior journalism and mass communications major Clayton Hurdle. Liz was nominated by a Samford alum for her outstanding work and presence as head of the Special Collections and Archives at Samford Library. 

The person who nominated her wrote, "Mrs. Wells was the face of Samford to all of these people who might not interact with anyone else while on campus. ...I witnessed her treat each visitor as a welcomed VIP, and she ensured that her student workers and full-time employees also treated the visitors with the same warmth. And she also took the time to mentor, counsel, and love each of her student workers. When many people across the country think of the face of Samford, they think of Liz Wells and they think well of Samford because of her."

Each month, the Office of Communications and Marketing will name Brand Ambassadors from nominated individuals who positively represent Samford University. At the end of the year, all Ambassadors will be honored in a year-end event.

Liz was previously honored in 2012 with the Jennings Marshall Service Award for significant and sustained service contributions to the University.

Congratulations, Liz, on this fantastic honor!
