The Naming of Jordan Elementary School in

Brentwood, Tennessee


After a concerted effort lead by Diversity Leadership Project students to name Williamson County’s first elementary school after Sgt. George Jordan, Lainey Bouvier decided to create a video explaining the life of Sergeant George Jordan and his significance in not only Williamson County’s history, but also in our country’s history. 

Lainey created this video to share Jordan’s unique story and educate students at Jordan Elementary School, all Williamson County 5th grade and 8th grade history classes (that require a unit on Jordan) and anyone who doesn’t believe that the power of youth can change the course of history.
