This award is for one outstanding Upper Moreland High School graduating senior, who is an active participant in service to others inside of their participating school and in the community, an active participant in EASTERN activities, and continuing his or her education after high school.
Jordyn was selected for this honor for her involvement in activities at EASTERN, such as SkillsUSA, EASTERN’s student leadership organization, and in the Allied Health Program Occupational Advisory Committee (OAC). For the 2015 – 2016 school year, Jordyn served as the SkillsUSA Vice President of the Allied Health program.

“Receiving this prestigious award is such an honor for me,” said Jordyn. “I enjoy helping others and a career in nursing has always been my dream. I want to thank the Willow Grove Rotary and Mr. Swindells for presenting me with this award.”
