Tidehaven Rickaway

Tidehaven High School’s class of 2017 Valedictorian is Jordan Rickaway who is also a member of the Matagorda County United Way Youth Board. Rickaway, a National Honor Society member, received a number of scholarships she plans to use to attend the University of Texas at Austin. She is the daughter of Kevin and Cathy Rickaway and the older sister of Taylor Rickaway. “It has been my dream since I joined the Longhorn Kids Club to be a Longhorn,” said Rickaway. “Now my dream is coming true!” She will be majoring in biology in order to pursue a career in the medical field. Her goal is to become an oncologist. Congratulations to Rickaway and to all of our 2017 Youth Board graduates.
