Jordan HahnBROWNWOOD – November 8, 2016 – Jordan Hahn of Burnet was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to attend Howard Payne University’s Guy D. Newman Honors Academy. Hahn, who graduated from a homeschool program in May and began her freshman year at HPU this fall, is majoring in global studies and the Academy. She is the daughter of Jason and Jodi Hahn.

The Guy D. Newman Honors Academy: The Program for Civic Leadership and Public Policy is designed for academically gifted students who aspire to leadership roles in a variety of careers. Students develop critical-thinking skills by analyzing current issues through the multidisciplinary Honors Academy major, which includes courses from the School of Humanities and the School of Business.

Hahn said HPU prepares students by promoting a strong faith.

“With this solid foundation, I know I will be able to effectively use the Academy’s program for civic leadership and public policy to achieve my goal of becoming a lawyer,” she said. “The experiential learning aspect of the program is something I see as incredibly beneficial because it will allow me to put what I learn into practice while still in college, leaving me better prepared for life after graduation.”

Hahn participates in Moot Court at HPU and plans to attend law school after graduating.

“We are thrilled to welcome an exceptional new class into HPU’s Guy D. Newman Honors Academy,” said Dr. Matthew McNiece, Academy director. “Jordan joins a small cohort of equally dedicated, bright and talented students as they learn to put into practice the Academy’s motto: ‘Facing the Future with Faith and Knowledge.’”
