• Bryant Jordan Student Athlete Program


    While the most tangible purpose of the program is to distribute approximately $1 million annually in scholarship money to 104 high-achieving regional winners, awareness of the power of sport as a motivator for success is equally as important. Each spring at our Annual Awards Banquet, attention is called to students who exemplify the connection between academic success and athletic participation. With these amazing scholars as the best advocates, the organizers look to businesses, industries and individuals to support their pursuits through their involvement in the program.
