Jordan's Resume

Reason for Nomination: Jordan was nominated by the faculty at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Phyllis Moore, Director, 150-Hour and Master of Accountancy Program, stated, "We selected Jordan because he is an exceptional student in our program. He is a very well rounded student, has amazing leadership skills, and has been recognized frequently for his academic achievements as listed on his resume.

Jordan will graduate Summa Cum Laude with an entrepreneurship minor, along with his BSAcc and MAcc degrees in May 2014. He received numerous scholarships, and has been on the Dean's List every semester at MU.

Jordan continues to be very involved on campus, in the School of Accountancy and Trulaske College of Business, unlike many students at the graduate level. What is amazing about Jordan is that he is involved in many different types of organizations, and he takes an active leadership role in everything he does.  Jordan has developed strong relationships with current students, prospective students, and alumni. In addition to his activities, he is a teaching assistant for a computer data based system class this year. Jordan's many accomplishments have been recognized. Most recently he was selected as one of MU's Mizzou 39 a highly selective group. Mizzou 39 is an annual award program that recognizes 39 outstanding seniors at MU for their academic achievement, leadership, and service to the University and community. Jordan is an outstanding role model for all accounting students.

He has had two internships in St. Louis, and has accepted a job with Ernst and Young in St. Louis in the advisory area, which will begin upon graduation."
