The Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs has selected Jordan "Jordi" Floyd as Rotary Student of the Month for March. The Steamboat Springs High School senior is described as outgoing, responsible, talkative, friendly and confident.

"I have recommended her to you because besides being one of the kindest young ladies I have met, she is a stellar student, a standout two-sport athlete and overall great young lady with strong values," wrote Danica Moss, Steamboat Springs High School counselor, in a nomination letter.

During the summers, Jordi works with the STARS program. She began as a volunteer junior mentor and was then selected for a paid position as a junior counselor. Now, Jordi has been promoted to lead counselor.

"Working with STARS has changed the way I view others and has made me consider a career in this field," Jordi said.

In the fall, she will attend Montana State University where she plans on pursuing a degree in occupational therapy or education while skiing at the collegiate level as a member of MSU's Nordic team.

In high school, Jordi was a Nordic skier with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, training over 500 hours each year and traveling around the U.S. to compete. She also was a member of the varsity girls soccer team.
