SHCTC Student Nominated as Presidential Scholar for Career & Technical Education

Jordan Glover

Jordan Glover nominated for Presidential Scholar.

February is Career and Technical Education month and one particular honor that extends from this would be the Presidential Scholars Program.  This program began in 1964, by executive order of the President, to provide recognition and honor to some of the nation’s most distinguished high school seniors.  
 
In 1979, it extended to add in visual, performing, and creative arts. Then, in 2015, this program opened the doors for recognition for those students in career and technical education that demonstrate ability and accomplishment. 
 
The Presidential Scholars Award is recognition of students who excel overall in academic, technical, and personal skills areas.  To apply for the award, a rigorous nomination process was completed by her health assistant teacher using evidence gleaned from Jordan’s Career Portfolio.  
 
After she was selected as a nominee by a state committee, she was able to present her reasons for choosing Career and Technical Education as her pathway to her selected career. 

Mrs. Lana Barth chose to nominate Jordan based on her hard work and her determination to take advantage of the many opportunities provided to her at the CTC.  She has shown admirable academic achievement through enrollment in the National Honor Society at her homeschool and in the National Technical Honor Society at the CTC. 
 
She has also taken advantage of 6 dual enrollment credits offered at the CTC and also several college credits in her home school.  Jordan participated in the District 10 SkillsUSA competition last year, winning a bronze medal for her career portfolio development.  

Jordan shows teamwork and support of fellow classmates through her involvement in Safety Committee, CTC Student Committee, and her diligence in creation of games and study activities that benefited all students in morning and afternoon sessions of the health assistance program. 
 
Jordan was one of the first CTC students to develop a complete online career portfolio.  Her portfolio has been used as a teaching tool for other students and teachers in several surrounding schools.  Since then, she has continued to improve her portfolio even further.  She has demonstrated community awareness through joining her local ambulance association as a volunteer.    

Currently, Jordan is part of the Capstone program at UPMC Cole as a Food Service Attendant.  This program allows Jordan to attend school part of the day and go to work at UPMC Cole the second half when she would normally be at the CTC. She plans on attending an undecided university to achieve her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing.  Jordan’s career goal is to become a Pediatrician.  

Seneca Highlands CTC is proud to be represented by Jordan Glover in such a prestigious award.  This demonstrates just some of the advantages to students who are serious about their futures.  This award also emphasizes that not only does Career and Technical education provide a step up for students, it also adds the element of community involvement.

I know Jordan, but it would be nice to have her name and home school in this notice.

Congratulations to Jordan! But the article omitted her last name and the school she attends. This needs to be corrected in this article. Thank you.
