Gardner-Webb University is already close to the heart of Jerrae Gordon, even before he walks into his first freshman class or meets his first college friend. Gordon, a recent Shelby High School graduate who will attend Gardner-Webb on a R.W. Andrews Scholarship, draws inspiration from his mother, Cynthia, in his decision to pursue higher education at the University. Gordon’s mom entered college as an adult, with the goal of preparing for a career as a counselor, and she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and counseling at Gardner-Webb in 2014.
