Meet Jordan Outing, Miss N.C. A&T State University

Jordan Soleil Outing is the niece of Calvin and Venus Byrd. She is a Senior International Management Student from Chesapeake, Virginia, by way of Waterbury, Connecticut.  Miss Outing has been dancing for 10 years and hopes to impact women through her gift. On campus she has used her gifts in Cool Mist Dance Team and Golden Delight Dance Auxiliary, where she was voted Miss Sweetheart. Miss Outing also participated in ALOBEAME Accounting Society and Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society. She is a Spring 2013 initiate into the Alpha Phi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Within the Sorority, she served as the chapter treasurer and as National Pan-Hellenic Council Treasurer.

Since 2008, Miss Outing commits to being a part of a semiannual community service event where she donates hats and gloves to the Hunton YMCA, and the Shepherds Village Nursing Home, both in Norfolk, Virginia. She also participated heavily with the Ronald McDonald House, and the American Red Cross. She hopes to work heavily with the American Cancer Society and to bring health awareness to her community. Currently, she participates in many campus wide community service projects, and enjoys tutoring youth at the Smith Home Boys and Girls Club. In the near future, Miss Outing hopes to participate in the Peace Corps where she can serve the world in a greater sector.

Her platform is “Going for the G.O.L.D: Go Out and Live your Dreams”. She plans to inspire her peers to pursue their goals and dreams by achieving greatness through education, being successful through professionalism, and conquering the world through community service. She is passionate about encouraging other people to be who God has created them to be and realizing their purpose. She prays that she will simply be a light on campus and share wisdom with peers.

Jordan’s favorite scripture is Psalms 1:3: You will be like a tree, firmly planted by streams of water, you will yield your fruit in season, your leaves will not wither, and whatever you do will prosper.
