Jordan Thomas

Sadly, we lost Jordan in early 2021. Words cannot express the love that Lakeview staff, students, and faculty had for Jordan. As his teachers Ashley Collins and Teresa Hughes shared as they presented Jordan with the 12th Grade Academic Merit Award:
" ..the words "sincere," "respectful," and "persistent" all come to mind. Even with difficult, challenging tasks, he follows through, stays the course, and keeps a winner's attitude. He is a leader in sports and in the classroom as well. Two of the most endearing qualities everyone is familiar with about this young man is his down-to-earth common sense and having the best Southern drawl in Georgia. Hearing him say, "Yes m,'am" throughout the course of a long assignment really brightens our day!"  Jordan is awarded the 12th grade Academic Merit Award "For all these strengths and his positive "teachable" attitude."
