The Ellen DeGeneres Show surprises future WGU North Carolina student.

Jordan is an outstanding 1st-grade teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina. She really, really wants to go back to school for her master’s degree so she can become an even more outstanding educator—but still buried in undergraduate student debt, her dream has seemed out of reach.

Jordan was recently an audience member on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where Ellen and WGU gave her the surprise of a lifetime. The Ellen DeGeneres Show also helped spread the word about WGU's Women in Leadership Scholarship!
