Of the ten finalists, Colin Brown and Riah Wigfall were chosen to be Hannibal's official ambassadors for the coming year.

Colin is the son of Jeff and Brea Brown. Riah is the daughter of Jessica Homeyer.

The announcement comes at the end of a months long process, with seventh graders wanting to represent the community going through a testing and interview process, most of which, in this season of COVID-19, took place virtually.

The other finalists will also serve as Tom and Becky ambassadors at the whole host of events at which their presence is required or requested.

The other Tom finalists were: Jared Locke, son of Jeff and Kori Locke; Aiden Odom, son of E.J. and Angie Odom; Maddox Tharp, son of Richard and Stacie Tharp and Kendrick Wilson, son of Nathan and Jennifer Wilson.

The other Becky finalists were: Emilia Bates, daughter of Rick and Kara Bates; Piper Harvey, daughter of Lance and Steffi Harvey; Harper Karr, daughter of Lance and Meghan Karr and Alana Lemon, daughter of James and Anna Lemon.
