Biographical Sketch

Carolyn Jordan is a Lubbock resident active in civic and political organizations. A native of California, she attended Stanford University receiving degrees in Mathematics and Education. After moving to Lubbock, Texas in the 1960s, she became involved in local volunteer and civic activities. She served as President of the Lubbock League of Women Voters from 1969-1972. In 1972 Jordan ran for and won a seat on the Lubbock City Council and was re-elected in 1976. Jordan became a practicing attorney after receiving her law degree from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1977. A 1980 attempt to expand her political career failed when she lost the District 75A State Representative contest to R. N. "Buzz" Robnett. She continued her career as an attorney, serving on several committees of the State Bar of Texas, and her work as a volunteer and promoter of civic interests.
