Press Release #14-061



Dr. Tuajuanda Jordan demonstrated Wednesday that she does not back down from a challenge. After being nominated by alumnus Stephon Dingle to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s new president readily accepted the icy dare that is attached to a good cause. “This is an incredibly important opportunity to get the word out about this disease,” she said. 

Jordan assumed the role of president of St. Mary’s College on July 1. Her inauguration ceremony will be held Oct. 17-18 on the college’s Townhouse Green.
