He is a recurring Dean’s list member and a recipient of the Promise Scholarship. Entering his fifth year as a member of the Student Government Association as Chief of Staff, Jordan has one of the most storied career’s the organization has ever seen. He began as an active member of Freshman Council, in which he served for a full year. He then moved on to serve in the Student Senate for a full two years, in which he earned the position of Treasurer and served as head of the Senate Finance Committee. During his time in Senate, he was awarded the highest honor a Senator can receive, Senator of the Year. Jordan then moved on to serve as Business Manager to the Harrell administration, a position in which he managed a $90,000 budget and completely overhauled it so that it was accepted under federal accounting standards.

During Jordan’s time at Marshall University, his campus involvement has been nothing short of impressive. He is currently a member of Beta Alpha Psi, an Honorary Accounting/Finance Fraternity, where he has held the roles of Communications Director and most recently Vice-President. He is also a member of Herd for Christ, Relay for Life, and The LiveSTRONG Foundation. He is also an active member of Student Advocates for Legislative Advancement, an education based student lobbying organization for his fellow students at Marshall. He is the re-founding Vice-President of The Rotaract Club at Marshall, and also a member of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.

Jordan is involved in a number of committees that help to shape our campus. As a member of the Club Sports Council, Jordan created a budget so that all club sports at Marshall can receive a fair share of funding from the University. He is also a member of the International Festival Planning Committee, which saw an entire overhaul and its greatest success. He is a member of both the Homecoming as well Memorial Ceremony Planning Committee, both of which boasted their best execution in years.

Jordan is deeply devoted to his community and has served on a number of projects including the VITA program, which provides tax filing assistance to low income and international students, as well as a volunteer at the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. He also was involved in organizing the Campus wide Ramen Noodle Cook-off which benefited two third world countries.

Jordan’s interests include the sports of skiing, golfing, tennis, and running, as well as having a passion for cars. His favorite quotation comes from the former President John F. Kennedy; “Change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”
