Jordan Gould hasn’t been out of Frenship High School long, but little has changed with her tendency to get involved in as many projects as possible with her school.

As a high school student, Gould played volleyball for four years and was active in National Honor Society, DECA and Dugout Darlins. She graduated third in the class of 2007.

“I was in everything I could get my hands in in high school,” said Gould. “That was my mom’s biggest fear (about her attending college) – that I’d get too involved and not have time.

“I never think I’m too involved. I like to have things to do.”

Gould is a sophomore advertising major at Texas Tech University. She is a member of Kappa Alpha Theta and the Student Alumni Association Board.

Now Gould has been selected from about 360 applicants to be one of the President’s Select, a group of student ambassadors chosen to serve the university in recruitment and building relationships. The students lead tours of the university every day of the week.

President’s Select was started in 1994 from members of the Saddle Tramps and High Riders organizations. It evolved from a mere tour group when a past president of Tech decided the students could be helpful in other areas. President’s Select is active in recruiting for the athletic department.

“It interested me, so I looked into it and applied,” said Gould.

Now she, with 25 other students selected to join the ranks of the President’s Select, is learning “crazy things about Tech” so they will be able to answer questions during tours.

She will begin leading tours and other duties during the spring semester.

Gould said she applied to be in President’s Select because she has always taken pride in Texas Tech.  Both her parents attended Tech.
