Last year Jordan won a scholarship to study art in a summer program at the Glassell School of Art in Houston and had a Gold Medal in 2017 at the rodeo. He also received a second place on his portfolio as a junior which usually goes to seniors.
Jordan is doing very well in all his classes and has done an about face with his grades since his freshman year. He is one of the most talented students I have ever taught. Jordan thinks outside the box and creates the most spectacular artwork.”
Hannah Landry, Math Teacher, said, “Jordan is an excellent math student. He is intelligent, hardworking, and self-motivated, a combination that ensures success. What a joy it has been having him in class!”
Cathy Riley, English Department Chair & Director of Bridge City Strutters, said, “JORDAN JANIS is absolutely one of my favorite students because he is an absolute gentleman with a cool demeanor and a warm heart.

One might see JORDAN creating magnificent pieces of art, speaking eloquently as he analyzes literature in English class, or befriending others throughout the day. He demonstrates a positive influence on others and strives for a richer existence. Without a doubt, JORDAN JANIS’s future will be rich, and those he influences will be richer for knowing him.”
