Your gift matters to Jordan.

Name: Jordan Frazier

Major: Agricultural Business

Year: Sophomore at University of Maryland Eastern Shore

Hometown: Springdale, Maryland

What were the deciding factors when choosing your major or area of study?  Well, I was undecided on my major prior to starting college.  While having a conversation with my college recruiter during my college visit, she helped me narrow down my interest towards food, nutrition, and agriculture which is closely connected to my goal of entrepreneurship and owning a restaurant.

How are you funding your education?  I’m funding my college education by scholarships and the USDA Scholar Program.

What is a skill or experience you don't possess now but hope to leave college with?  I hope to leave college with a better understanding of financial literacy and skills.

Jordan what are your current educational and career goals?  As stated before, I’m a 2nd semester sophomore majoring in Agribusiness with the goal of graduating in May 2024 with my Bachelor of Science Degree.
