Jordan Clanton is known by many around the RHS community as an exceptionally involved individual. Clanton is currently a senior at Rangeview High School. Clanton has been involved at Rangeview since the moment she stepped through the doors.

Clanton said, “I have been a part of National Honors Society (NHS), Tri-M, leadership, Animal Rescue Club, show choir, advanced performing arts (APA), soccer, Link Crew, and softball.”

You can almost always count on seeing Clanton’s jeep hanging out somewhere in the Rangeview parking lot either really early before school begins or really late, hours after school has ended for the day.

Clanton has been said to be committed give her all in everything that she does.

Clanton was also a part of RHS leadership during her freshman year and has continuously shown her natural ability to lead in many areas of her life.

One of Clanton’s varsity softball teammates, sophomore Cassie Pearson, said, “She [Clanton] didn’t just stand out as a senior, she stood out last year as well. She would never complain and worked the hardest out of everyone.”

As a whole, the varsity softball team overwhelmingly agreed that Clanton was definitely one of the top leaders on the team from the 2018 season. Many said they looked up to her on and off the field.

Varsity softball coach James said, “Clanton is like every coach’s dream athlete: always present, willing to go above and beyond, willing to do whatever it takes to help the team.”

Clanton takes her strengths beyond the perimeter of Rangeview High School.

“Tri-M is an honors music society where we do community service for events and activities exclusively including music,” said Clanton.

Clanton is repeatedly seen helping her community and taking her bright spirit wherever she goes.

Despite what she is involved in, Clanton is well-known at Rangeview for her ability to sing. Clanton has been in choir all four years. She has performed multiple solos, sang the national anthem at assemblies and softball games, been a leader in musicals, and even won the 2017 homecoming talent show and performed For the First Time Ever from Disney’s Frozen in front of the entire school at the Grand Assembly.

Clanton has been an active member in the theater. She can be found there doing a lot of different things. Clanton has mentioned many times her passion for the theater, and is the president of the Thespians Club.

Rangeview alumni, Kuleni Abdo, said, “Working on shows with Clanton always made you want to become a better actor, her energy was always so positive and upbeat that it was inspiring.”

She has taken on many roles this year alone: varsity softball captain, president of the thespians, sound technician, student, daughter, friend, and more.  

After graduating, Clanton plans on going to college and studying musical theatre to pursue her bachelor of fine arts (BFA).
