Alumna Selected to Serve as ‘AmbassadOREO’

Belmont alumna Michele Keil has been selected as an AmbassadOREO winner. In celebration of Oreo’s 100th anniversary, the AmbassadOREO campaign asked Oreo-eaters to submit videos that showcased their love for the sandwich cookie and selected munchers who “[did] the best at celebrating the kid inside” as the winners.

It was not until the night before the submission deadline that Keil said she decided to enter because of her brother’s insistence. After a brainstorming with her brother, his wife and his wife’s sister, Keil ultimately came up with an idea.

“Being a Nashville resident and Belmont alum have always loved music and writing songs so I thought I’d do a bit of a spin off Taylor Swift’s song “Love Story” and just wrote my own Oreo version,” she said. She admitted that she was surprised that she won, and is still “a little shocked.”

AmbassadOREOs from all over the world will be flown to New York City for the  100th anniversary celebration.
