"The love that Susan Jordan had for her students should be an inspiration to us all. I offer my deepest condolences to Principal Jordan’s family and friends and to the students and parents of Amy Beverland Elementary School. I join with all Hoosiers in mourning the loss of Susan Jordan and celebrating the life and impact of this talented, compassionate educator who paid the ultimate price for the students she loved so dearly.”
