Senior Class Presidents
Meet the presidents
The Senior Class Presidents, advised by the Stanford Alumni Association, represent the voice of the Senior Class and are responsible for creating class affinity and cohesion. They plan class programs and encourage school spirit through their hard work, commitment and creativity.
Johnathan is from Scott County, Tennessee, and has yet to find anyone else at Stanford with as strong of a southern accent. He loves long drives (like super long drives to the desert), hiking, writing and making TikToks. He is majoring in international relations and writing his senior thesis on slave labor in fashion supply chains. On campus, he has performed in the Gaieties Musical twice and has worked the past two summers at Stanford Sierra Camp. There’s nowhere in the world he loves more than Stanford, so he’s excited to take on this role as Senior Class President.

She is majoring in economics with a minor in modern language and has conducted research in cyber policy for Stanford’s CISAC and Internet Observatory for two years. On campus, she is a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority as well as the varsity track and field team, for which she throws the javelin. Her favorite place on campus is Palm Drive, and she fervently contends that the best ice cream place in Palo Alto is Tin Pot. She loves Stanford and all that it has given her and feels honored to be able to serve her class as Senior Class President.
Jordan is a senior from Seattle, Washington, majoring in international relations with a minor in data science. A runner on Stanford's varsity track and cross country teams, Jordan can often be found scouting out trails either at home in the Pacific Northwest or in the Bay Area. Some of her other hobbies include hiking, singing karaoke, testing out brunch spots, and playing any and all types of trivia. After Stanford, she’ll be working in management consulting in Seattle, where she hopes to finally master the art of cooking a decent meal. After years of her own personal growth at Stanford, she’s excited for the opportunity to be able to pay it forward and try to make sure that the Class of 2021's senior year is as fantastic as possible.
