Jordan Wells,

Performing Arts ’19

Performing arts gave Jordan freedom to explore all areas of theatre and serve as a workshop presenter at the South Carolina Theatre Association’s annual conference. After graduation, she earned a spot with Encore Stage & Studio as an education apprentice. Her new role created a way home and an opportunity to work for a theatre that enriches the community she grew up in.

Stewart Ruddy,

Secondary Education and English ’19

As a freshman, he jumped into field placement. As a sophomore, he served as a tutor. Junior year, he learned how to structure a class. Senior year, he went beyond the requirement to spend 170 hours student teaching and forming relationships with his students and co-workers. This passion for education helped Stewart secure a position teaching high school English at his alma mater before graduating.
