Outside of school, Jordan enjoys fishing, camping and playing guitar. Her post-graduation plans are to attend Northern Michigan University to pursue a business degree with an added minor in psychology.
Desmond Mullen is part of this year’s senior class and is putting the finishing touches on an excellent athletics career by participating as a member of the MSHS Varsity Baseball Team.
After playing baseball in little league and then taking some time away from the sport, Desmond returned to the diamond as part of this year’s varsity team and has excelled both at the plate and in the field. In his 15 games played this season, Desmond has 51 plate appearances that have resulted in 15 hits, 6 RBIs and 17 runs for a batting average of .349 and an on-base percentage of .451. His play this season recently saw him earn All-Great Northern Conference Second Team honors.
In addition to baseball, Desmond is also a four-year member of the MSHS Football Program and two-year member of the MSHS Wrestling Team. After his senior season on the gridiron, which was his third as a member of the Varsity team, Desmond was rewarded for his play as both a running back and defensive back by being named All-State Second Team (defensive back), All-U.P. “Dream Team” (defensive back) and All-Great Northern Conference (running back and defensive back).
Desmond excels in the classroom as well with a 3.71 cumulative GPA to consistently put him on the honor roll and included in the National Honor Society. Outside of school, Desmond volunteers time assisting with Special Olympics. In February 2022, Desmond signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Michigan Tech University, where he will participate as a member of the Huskies’ Football Program beginning next fall.
