Weld County Fair 100th Celebration
Jordan is the daughter of Sarah and Dustin Tomlinson of Eaton. She is a 9-year member of Wyatt 4-H Club and is involved in photography. She is a Senior at Eaton High School and is involved in FFA and FCCLA.
She is planning to attend Laramie County Community College in Wyoming and her career goal is Sonography. From a young age, Jordan knew that she wanted to be in the medical field. Her interest in ultrasound didn’t really spark until she received one herself. After an extensive amount of research as well as some shadowing, she decided that it was wanted she want to spend the rest of her life doing. After more research and shadowing, she wants to specialize in OB seeking her Associates in Sonography. Once she graduates and begins working, she would like to pursue her bachelor’s degree in hopes of being able to work her way up in her field.
Jordan began 4-H at the age of 8. Her first project was a steer named Elliott. She showed cattle for a year before expanding her horizons. The 4-H program has changed her life for the better and, has given her experiences and memories that she wouldn’t trade. It has taught her how to be a leader inside and outside of the ring, especially as she has grown older. The younger kids that are just starting out need to have a good example of how they should treat their animals and how they should act - winning or losing. She has learned how to become a good example for them through 4-H and especially through her participation in the Youth Ambassador Program. 4-H has pushed her to her limits, but it has also made her feeling like she is deserving of more that she led herself to believe. This is the last year in 4-H for Jordan and she will cherish the countless memories it has given her. The amazing experience will always hold a special place in her heart.
Jordan is the recipient of the Weld County Fair 100th Celebration Scholarship.
