I've been in higher education since 2002 and each year female students would gravitate towards me, and I'd become a campus mom/mentor/big sister to them, many of whom today will still contact me if necessary. For the first time ever, a male student assumed this role. From the day I met Jordan at a Student Leadership Training, at which I spoke, he came up to me afterwards and said he was coming to my office to receive help with his resume. Little did I know he would consistently show up to career-related programs (dressed in a full suit), email, call, and text me about landing a job post graduation. Jordan officially became my son and as his navigated recruiters and the job selection process (he's the number one recruited student on campus), he kept me in the loop every step of the way. Students like Jordan are rare: an award was created for him, and a position was created for him in Raliegh, that was subsequently moved to Charlotte because this is where he wants to plant roots. Companies don't do that for just anybody. I could go on and on (and I probably will later), but I'll end by saying what I said to his mom Friday evening when I met her: you raised something very special. There's not a soul who meets Jordan and doesn't fall in love with his charming personality and warm heart." #JCSU#ClassOf2018#JordanShaw#RememberThatName#MrJCSU#MrOmega#MrCIAA#GoldenLegacyAwardWinner#TheseTitlesArentMadeUp#HeEarnedThem#TheyreOnHisResume#Catch#ProudCampusMom 💙💛💙💛💙💛💙
Try to live every single day like it's gonna be your last day. If you will know, that tomorrow will be the last day of your life, would you spend it like you will spend tomorrow? Live fully every second, minute, hour, day, month and year. Don't focus on past, don't care about what can happen, just live in the present moment and enjoy where you are, who you are and with who you are surround with right now💪🏿🤗
With one swing of the bat AND in his #MLBDebut yesterday, #MNTwins OF @jakecave8 accomplished two big 1sts in the bottom of the 4th inning. ⠀
In his 2nd at-bat of the game, he hit the first pitch out to right field for his #1stMLBHit AND his #1stMLBHomeRun ! It put the @twins up 4-2! ⠀
What a great moment for Jake & his family!
In his 1st at-bat, he grounded into a fielder's choice, got his #1stMLBStolenBase and scored his #1stMLBRun . In his 3rd at-bat, he struck out .So a night packed with firsts, most of them good!
Unfortunately, the Twins couldn't hold that lead and ended up losing 5-4 so they will try to avoid the sweep today with another Jake on the mound today, Jake Odorizzi, against the @brewers!
