Rondell M. Jordan - J. Evans Rose, Jr. Prize for Government Service recipient - 2018

Rondell Jordan’s interest in government began at the young age of 13 when he landed his first job as a member of a street team for a local councilwoman’s re-election campaign.  He travelled his district to help make sure folks were aware of the upcoming election and the works of this councilwoman.

Before coming to law school, Rondell worked as a field organizer on a United States Senate campaign meeting with folks who were united in their belief that a government and its leaders, should above all, serve its people.

During law school, Rondell worked as a fair housing intern with the City of Pittsburgh’s Civil Rights Enforcement Agency – The Commission on Human Relations.

Rondell also recently graduated from Carnegie Mellon University, H. John Heinz III College, with a Master of Science in Public Policy Management.

As a first-generation college and law student from Brooklyn, New York, Rondell plans to use the education and skills he has acquired to help solve systematic problems and create smart policies that will benefit people in the poverty, high-crime, and poor public school neighborhoods like he grew up in.
