Senior Spotlight: Jordan Barr 

By: Lennon Puls

     Jordan Barr has lived here for six years now, but also lived here when she was in second grade as well for a total of seven years living in Richmond. During her time in high school, she has played volleyball for four years and in this time has fallen in love with the game. Jordan says, “It’s the only sport I’ve ever really played, other than a year of recreational softball. I got into it right away, and playing just seemed really natural. I love being on the court, and I’m going to miss it immensely.” She has also been in Speech and Debate for four years, Drama Club for four years, Student Council for four years, Art Club for two years, NHS for two years, Yearbook for one year, Journalism for one year, and has been cast and crew in seven theatre productions. Jordan says that her favorite parts of these activities are “being involved and getting to know people I otherwise may not have gotten to meet.”

     After high school, Jordan will be attending Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. She adds, “It’s large, about 39,000 people, so I won’t have to worry about turning into the baking aisle at Walmart in my pajamas and seeing three teachers and seven students from class while I’m there.” While at SEMO, she will be majoring in an English-Writing degree with an art minor. She plans to later switch towards a Creative Writing major with a double minor in art and small press publishing. She says that she has always loved English and art, so going into them just makes sense for her. She hopes to be an editor one day, because she says that she has “a problem with fixing papers without being asked, and so getting to edit novels would be great.” She hopes to also write her own novels on the side of this, saying that unless your name is J.K. Rowling or Stephen King, it is hard to make writing a profession on its own. She could see herself living in either New York or New Orleans after college. She has always wanted to go to New York, and so living there would be a dream, and the history behind the town of New Orleans as well. Jordan has an amazingly bright future ahead of her, and RHS wishes her the best of luck in all of her endeavors.
