CASTINE — Ellsworth High School alum and Maine Maritime Academy senior Keith Jordan was announced last week as the North Atlantic Conference’s first Senior Scholar Athlete.
Jordan, a 2017 Ellsworth graduate, competed with the MMA swim team in its inaugural season at the club level three years ago and returned to the team at the varsity level this season. He was also a member of the school’s cross-country team and a team manager for the volleyball team.
Jordan, a power engineering technology major, has maintained a 3.49 grade point average. The Waltham native was previously named to the NAC All-Academic team this fall and has been a fixture on the school’s dean’s list for four years.
At Ellsworth High School, Jordan competed on the football, swim and outdoor
track teams. He was chosen as Ellsworth/ Sumner’s participant for the 28th Shrine Lobster Bowl in 2017.
The NAC offered a swim and dive season for the first time this past winter. The conference is set to hold its first championship event in the sport in 2022
