  • I've covered Jordan for our local newspaper a couple of times over the years. The dedication this man has to educating his students is second to none. We couldn't be more proud to have this young man in our community. Truth is, we're blessed he is a part of our community. Well deserved. Very proud of Jordan!

  • Jordan's mother and father wish to thank the Milken organization for Jordan's award. We know of Jordan's tireless, around-the-clock, commitment to his profession. It's wonderful to know that he is appreciated by others, too.
    Thank you very much.
    Bruce McGaughey, R.Ph.
