Born and raised in Apex, North Carolina, in 1997, Jordan is a rising senior at ECU and the Student Body President for the 2018-2019 school year. A double-major in Political Science (B.S.) and Public Relations Communications, Jordan has aspirations of attending law school and pursuing a career as an attorney. Raised by parents, Rusty and Sarah, Jordan has been constantly surrounded by service to the State of North Carolina and higher education. Jordan’s mother, Sarah, is the State Archivist of North Carolina and his father, Rusty, is the Director of the Medical Archives for Duke University. Jordan’s brother, Jackson, will be attending Appalachian State University in Fall 2018.

During his time at ECU, Jordan has dedicated his time to representing and advocating for students of all backgrounds. Through his service with groups such as the ELITE Pirates and as the President of his fraternity, Jordan has found a passion for serving students and the University.

Jordan has served on several boards throughout ECU, including the board of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, the Interfraternity Council, and the ELITE Pirates Executive Board. In addition, Jordan has spent much of his time connecting with and serving the city of Greenville. From working alongside the Mayor and Council Members, to helping coordinate city-wide service projects, Jordan has developed a great connection and investment with the city of Greenville. Jordan has served on the city’s Historic Preservation Commission as well as being an honorary member of the Greenville Noon Rotary Club. In addition, Jordan is a proud brother of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity as well as a member of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Fraternity.

In Spring of 2018, Jordan was elected by the student body of ECU to represent them as their Student Body President. Running on a platform of advocacy and providing a “Voice For Every Pirate,” the students of ECU overwhelmingly voiced their support for Jordan. Throughout his time as SGA President, Jordan hopes to continue to build on the great groundwork of his predecessors while bringing in his own unique additions. To Jordan, an effective Student Government is one where students are aware of what all SGA can provide and utilize their representatives in whatever ways they need.

Jordan brings with him a passion for ECU Athletics and fan engagement, as well as University growth and development. Jordan currently sits on the University Affairs committee, Finance and Facilities Committee, and the Audit Committee.
