Alumni Newsletter – January 2019

Jordyn McCain Milenkovic (‘09), along with fellow CCS graduates, has begun planning the class of 2009 ten-year reunion. She hopes to see many familiar faces to make new memories with old friends. Jordyn and her husband Steven enjoy raising their two sons, Christian (2) and Grayson (7 months), in College Station, TX, where they bought their first home last year. Jordyn holds a B.B.A. in marketing from Texas A&M University and is the owner of Jordyn Elaine Digital and Graphic Design, which serves businesses of all sizes. Her career path has allowed her to work from home and provide as much nurturing, love and attention as possible to her two boys. Jordyn says, “It isn’t always glamorous, but it is definitely worth it. God has allowed me to be creative without the stresses of a corporate environment, and I have met some incredible people who have mentored me along the way.” Jordyn’s husband, Steven, is a consulting manager for Deloitte Consulting. They attend Central Baptist Church, and Jordyn is Zeta Tau Alpha’s Panhellenic Advisor for the Theta Gamma Chapter at Texas A&M. Jordyn says she greatly enjoys mentoring young women.
