My name is Jordan Thornton. I’m from Elizabeth City, North Carolina. I am eighteen years old. While attending Northeastern High School, I was active in the National Honor Society, Math Honor Society, Quill and Scroll Honor Society, Health Occupations Students of America., Yearbook Publication, a girls empowerment club called Pretty D.O.P.E Girlz, and a Student Support Services program called the Upward Bound TRIO Program. While participating in these programs, I maintained a 3.9 GPA and walked the stage with the Class of 2020. I am now a sophomore at Elizabeth City State University. I am an active participant in the University Honors Program, the Student Support Services Program, the National Society of Leadership and Success, and the Viking R. A. C. E. Program at Elizabeth City State University. I work in the Office of Student Affairs as an Administrative Office Assistant. I currently hold a grade point average of 4.0, and I've been on the Chancellors' List in the Fall of 2020 and the Spring of 2021. My plan after graduating from college is to attend medical school.
