Hospitality major Jordan Moyer is a team player in the classroom and out.
On March 17, Moyer and several other people put together the Highlanders Care Fun Fair in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
She was responsible for contacting donors, preparing food and drink, organizing donations and maintaining a social media presence. She also oversaw setting up the event and getting movie licenses.
Moyer said though Eureka Springs is known as a tourist destination, there isn’t much for children to do.
“I wanted to create something that is fun for people to do and support an organization that is bringing something fun for students and other kids to do and stay within the town,” Moyer said.
Citizen of the Week
Because of this, several members of the community nominated Moyer for Citizen of the Week by Lovely County Citizen.
She was recognized for this accomplishment March 21.
A native of Eureka Springs, the members were impressed Moyer came back to create this event rather than host in Springfield where she currently attends MSU.
“I had a great time, and I would love to create an event and raise money if anyone needs help,” Moyer said.
