Jordan Chadwick-Camp, Vice President of Southern & Dobson
1. Major: Astronomy/Astrophysics
2. Desired Career Goals: I used to believe astronomy was a study where people saw the stars. I quickly realized that it's not about people seeing stars, for me it's about bringing the beauty of the stars to the people. My goals sometime align with common desires; get a good job, provide for my family, live a good life. However, when I think about my role not only as an astronomer but also as a scientist, I tap in to a new level of desires. Of course, I do have concrete goals; I plan on working for NASA within the next 5-7 years, I am working towards the long term goal of being a professor and working at the same university as my wife, and one day I will work in space. But my work and desires are about more than myself, it has become about all of humanity. Whether I become a renowned for my work or not, my goal is to do something that will help the future generations. May it be something that pushes mankind into a new era, or simply helping discover something that saves only one life. All in all, my career goal is to make a positive impact on human kind.
3. Strengths Quest Results: Self-assurance, Futuristic, Maximizer, Ideation, Learner.
4. Position description:
As the Vice-President of our Phi Theta Kappa chapter, Omicron Beta, at MCC Southern & Dobson I have a variety of responsibilities. The main one being the creator and instigator of our general meetings held every Thursday at 1:30pm in NU101. Within this responsibility lies several key factors that I must also implement; such as establishing a general and well understood knowledge of the Five Star Competitive Edge program, helping with both HIA (Honors in Action) and College project by not only supplying my time and labor but by also informing campus students and the general public, and also being a key point of contact between students and faculty. As a key point of contact, I plan to be available by whatever means necessary to provide you with the information you need. Please feel free to come to me with any issues, questions, or concerns you may have.
5. What are your goals for Phi Theta Kappa:
My goals are centered around the notion of creating a well connected chapter and campus. I plan on creating and implementing a series of general meetings that are not only informative, but engaging. I want our meetings to be something that all MCC students flock to as a source of information, guidance, and inspiration. Not only that, but I plan on having meetings that create endless opportunities for students to better not only themselves, but their communities as well. Another goal is to continue to promote Five Star Competitive Edge, and I hope to raise enough awareness about the program that we get approached about it more often than we even promote it. A more personal goal however is to be a reliable and quality course of communication between members, officers, administration, and beyond. I plan to be the guy that always knows a guy, someone that you can always count on to connect you to whomever you need most. So, LET'S NETWORK!
