GRADUATION 2017: North Hills All County Scholar

Jordan Leigh Plummer, of Mocksville, is the daughter of Jason and Dina Plummer. She attended North Hills Christian School for her elementary, middle and high school education. She will attend Gardner-Webb University where she plans to major in business administration. Her career goal is to work in Cinemark Theatres’ Corporate Office. For her senior project, she put together a binder with artifacts from each core subject to show her growth over her high school years.

She was on the volleyball, basketball and soccer teams at North Hills. Additionally, she is the Academic Prefect of the Student Government, the secretary of Junior Civitan and leader of Latin tutoring. She also works at Tinseltown and enjoys time spent with Franklin Baptist Church Youth.

A defining moment in her life: when I went to Gardner-Webb on accepted students’ day, I knew it was the right college for me because everything went perfectly.

The secret of her high school success: Study, study and study some more.

If she had $10 million: I would give some to charity, the church and my friends and family, and then I would use the rest to buy a nice house and pay off student loans.
