GARLAND, Tex. – An 8-year-old girl got a very early acceptance into the college of her choice, all because of an inspiring motivational video posted online.
Jordin Phipps attends Watson Technology Center in Garland Texas. Her mom, Nichole Smith, posted a video to Facebook showing Jordin reciting the daily motivation pep talk she and her classmates say every morning at school.
In the video, Jordin is sporting a University of North Texas t-shirt. Jordin’s mom is a University of North Texas alumna.
UNT officials were so impressed with Jordin that they surprised her at an assembly at her school. They awarded her a $10,000 Presidential Excellence award, which is normally given to high school seniors, as well as guaranteed acceptance into UNT’s Class of 2030.
Way to go, Jordin!
