Jordan Miller ‘20

With a dream to head to an elite university after graduation next year, Jordan Miller is one of those kids who is certain to be noticed by many college admissions offices. A stellar GPA of 4.226 will certainly help, but he’s also very involved in and around campus. In the last three years you may have seen him on the basketball court, on the baseball field, on stage for the fall play, children’s show or musical, but he’s also been involved in oral interp, Student Ambassadors and Student Council. Jordan also participates in the “Guys’ Group” at the high school, which is facilitated by Chaplain Fr. Joe Scholten and theology teacher Nolan Cleary for young male students. “Guys’ group” is to help young males at O’Gorman talk about, and grow in, their faith. He’s also a member of the National Honor Society. After college, he plans on going to medical school. Both parents are in the medical field. He says he loves biology and that’s helping to fuel his interest in medicine. “I think O’Gorman is special because it’s more than a community—it’s like a family. With the smaller enrollment, every student gets the necessary attention by the teachers. Everybody is really close. The staff members know the kids. The teachers are wonderful leaders and I really look up to them. It’s just so much more than just a school.” Jordan points to teachers like Jeff Gordon. “You can really tell he truly cares about all of us. We do intentions every single morning—and he’s always praying for his students and always asking them how they are and you know he really means it.” Jordan doesn’t think all of his fellow students fully understand the impact of all they’ve been given in terms of their education, but he says he appreciates what he’s been given. “I want the donors to know that what they do doesn’t go unnoticed. They’re the reason O’Gorman is so special and why we have all of these wonderful opportunities. It’s because of them.”

Members of the STUDENT LEVEL are honored for their cumulative gifts since 1987 of $10,000 - $24,999.
