Jordan Houston Memorial Gym Dedication

December 19th, 2018

Members of the Carter G. Woodson Academy Student Government Association, led by Mr. DeMarcus Hopson, presented the family of Jordan Houston with our memorial gym dedication this morning in the Auxiliary Gym.  It will now be named the Jordan Houston Auxiliary Gymnasium.  Students of the SGA recited poems, created a memorial video and conducted the ribbon cutting and banner presentation.  Jordan was a CGWA scholar.  His father requested that our scholars dedicate the whole school year to Jordan's memory.  Jordan's family released balloons outside of the gym in memory of Jordan.  Several of his CGWA brothers and friends attended as well and shared their memories of Jordan.
