Meet Jordan Brown, a recipient of a Leon N. Weiner Education Foundation High School Tuition Scholarship. He is a stellar student and soon to be a sophomore at St. Elizabeth’s High School in Wilmington, DE.
Jordan faced challenges during his childhood starting with being a latchkey kid from age 6 to a single parent. He also suffered with asthma and had a reading deficiency. Undaunted, his mother decided that she would not let these challenges stop her child from greatness. Here is some of his story so far:
Childhood: Jordan had such an engaging personality that at 5-years-old he was allowed to join the Boys and Girls Club despite the rule requiring kids to be at least 7 to sign up. Little did he know his admission would prompt the Club to change their policy and allow other 5-year-olds to join.
Teenager: His math teacher reports, “He is a role model for all students and staff at St. Elizabeth’s High School.”
Childhood: At age 7, Jordan helped his Mom pay for his tutoring lessons by helping her sell items at the flea market. He would set up, handle the money and clean up.
Teenager: His basketball coach says, “Jordan is a tenacious player with hard work ethic on and off the court”.
Childhood: Jordan’s childhood tutor says “he always took on leadership roles in his elementary school.” He would often be the first to volunteer to help other students.
Teenager: Jordan is a St. Elizabeth’s Ambassador at all Open House events at the school.
Childhood: Jordan loved and played sports as a child despite his asthma. He would play, rest, play again, rest and play.
Teenager: His math teacher says, “Despite the difficulty of any math concept, he would ask questions until he understood.”
Childhood: Jordan knew that his being asthmatic worried his mother so he willingly followed the health tips of his tutor to eliminate the condition by age 13.
Teenager: During a basketball game when Jordan could have been a higher scorer, he chose to set up the play so that his teammates could score points.
