Sales Representative for
Kansas Art Education Association

Dear University Supervisor and Aspiring Students:

Alyssa at YAM as Vincent YAM Gogh
There is an exciting opportunity on the KAEA Board this year as the Student Representative position is open and ready for a new eager student. This role consists of recruiting and organizing student volunteers, communicating with supervisors across the state about the student scholarships, as well as organizing a small art activity at the Youth Art Month Celebration at Topeka. There are also 7 board meetings a year held in Salina, KS.

The board has been an inspiring and monumental experience in my life and I want to encourage everyone to become a part of it and share the benefits of being a part of KAEA. The board consists of a variety of talented art teachers from across the state opening up doors for interviewing and networking. Conference involvement looks impressive to future employers and shows leadership. The experience also helps develop leadership skills, organization skills, and advocacy points. The personal relationships between the board members is another perk, it is a great resource to have 20 mentors that are veteran teachers in the field.

Student representatives have come from all over the state and with the board meetings centrally located it allows for many students in art education to be eligible. If your students are interested in applying for this position, please contact Linda Nelson-Bova or Linda Morgan at or

I appreciate your time and consideration in reviewing this letter and hope to see many applications come in.

Alyssa Passmore
