Jordan Roddenberry has been our Young Alumni Associate since 2012 when she created the Generation HU young alumni program. This month, we are sad to say that she will be stepping down and moving to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where her husband Zach Roddenberry has accepted a teaching and coaching position.
“I have loved every minute of my job. I could not have asked for a better group of people in Advancement to work with and for,” she said. “I have made so many new friends during my time as a student and an employee, and it is those relationships that I will miss most. When I was asked to create a program that would encourage young alumni giving, I had no idea it would be this rewarding. Harding is truly a special place.”
Zach Roddenberry, former Bison basketball player, will be the head basketball coach at Boyd-Buchanan High School in Chattanooga. He graduated from Harding in 2013 with a degree in secondary education, and taught and coached this past year at Midland schools in Pleasant Plains, Arkansas.
“I am so excited to start this new position in a brand new place,” he said. “Harding is a really special place to my wife and me, and we owe a lot of our experiences and personal growth to this place.”
The Roddenberry’s have been very involved in planning, attending and promoting advancement-related events. Though we are sad to see them go, we are so excited for the opportunities that await them in Tennessee. Thank you, Jordan and Zach, for your love for Harding and for representing this University so well.
