Jordan Williams chose GW because the school gave him the platform to be his whole self, a “science nerd by day, aspiring jazz musician by night.”
“I love the college that I attend, and to be able to go here with the financial support of many is reassuring,” Jordan says. “Being awarded the Myers Family Endowed Scholarship and a Presidential arts scholarship brings me one step closer to my dreams and goals. For that, I am very appreciative.”
Jordan’s experience has extended beyond the classroom as he maintains membership in the Biomedical Engineering Society and National Society of Black Engineers and participated in an international jazz residency at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Jordan also takes part in diverse and enriching social opportunities such as the Voice Gospel Choir, for which he’s served as the group’s pianist since his freshman year.
“I promise that your investment in my education will certainly be worthwhile,” says Jordan. “It will enable me to not only excel in my field of study, but to give back to the George Washington University community in whatever way that I can.” —Veronica Hughes
