Introducing: Jordon Pond, McGovern Center Workstudy Student

Now that school is back in session, the McGovern Center has brought on a new workstudy student, Jordon Pond.

Jordon will now be responsible for updating the McGovern blog on a weekly basis, so we (Alisha and Carly) wanted to introduce you to her since our readers will be hearing from her much more often!

Jordan is a first year student at Dakota Wesleyan, planning on majoring in History.  Besides being interested in history, Jordon is excited about the theatre department here at DWU and also enjoys reading books, playing video games, drawing, and doing research about things that interest her.

We’re looking forward to hearing Jordon’s input on George and Eleanor McGovern’s legacy!  Please help us welcome Jordon to the McGovern Center team this year!
