“This is a special day for Jordan High School and our athletic department,” Jordan High School’s Director of Athletics Shelba Levins said. “When we seek leaders for our athletic programs, there are several different types of criteria that are important. We want coaches, who can provide both knowledge and leadership with an ability to mentor our student-athletes, as they cross the bridge from adolescence to the early stages of adulthood.”
