Director’s Bio

Mr. Walter Jordan

Walter Jordan is an Indiana High School Hall of Fame player (Northrop High School); where he led his team to a 29-1 record and the 1974 Indiana High School State Basketball Championship; where he also was named first-team Indiana All-State and All-Star (with legend Larry Bird) and Kentucky Derby All-American.

In high school, Walter was voted Sertoma Award Winner (state’s highest honor for student-athlete) and voted Best Male Citizen (by high school classmates).  After high school he then attended Purdue University where he was a three-time All Big Ten Performer, two-time team MVP and two-time team Captain.

In between his Junior and Senior season he reunited with Larry Bird and a strong cast of other college stars (Sidney Moncrief, Darryl Griffith, Freeman Williams, Calvin Natt, Phil Hubbard, James Bailey, Dave Corzine and others) to lead the USA World University team to the Gold Medal. He is still listed in among Purdue’s top eight all-time leading scorers and rebounders.

Walter has also been blessed to have coached at all levels (high school, college and the CBA). He currently is a mentor, motivational speaker, success coach, trainer, business owner (telecom/energy industry), and formally coaches at North Cobb Christian High School (Kennesaw, GA / 3-time State Champs); was a recent mentor for National Basketball Association (NBA D-League Mentorship team).

He has a strong history of being involved in every community in which he has lived; and for 17 years he directed his “Future Stars/ARC Summer Youth Program.”  From 1980 to 1990 he founded and directed the “Parade of Stars”, an annual NBA sanctioned benefit all-star basketball game (Big Brothers & Big Sisters and Allen County Society for Crippled Children & Adults). Parade of Stars featured such stars as Isaiah Thomas, Dominique Wilkins, Ron Harper, Scott Skiles, Scooter McCray, Wes Matthews, Chuck Person, Jerry Sichting, Shawn Kemp, Rodney McCray, Herb William, Coach Gene Keady and many others.

Mr. Jordan has a strong passion for serving and helping people; with an even stronger passion and focus on developing (physically & spiritually) our young men. He is most proud of the fact that he has helped well over one hundred kids find their college homes, many who have earned athletic and academic scholarships. He is well respected throughout the globe for his works; as his commitment and works have not gone unnoticed…as he has received numerous local and regional awards.

Recently Coach Jordan was named as #29 on the Mackey’s Top 50 List. Read more here.

Besides his passion and commitment for our kids, Walter is a Senior Director in the Health and Wellness space (WaltJordanOnLine.com); which once again allows Walter to educate, inspire, and impact others to learn a healthier and wiser life.

In 2014, Walter was listed among the Top Ranked U.S. Executives by the National Council of American Executive’s for his work.

One of Coach Jordan’s favorite sayings… “Make A WINNING DAY! According to coach this is what makes a winning day…”GOD (all things are possible with him/nothing is without him); HARD WORK (it beats talent-every time over time); ATTITUDE (for it is everything & your choice); and LOVE (for it is the most motivating force in the world)!” Have A WINNING DAY!

Excellent! Integrity! Leadership! Loyalty! Respect! Responsibility! Service! Teamwork! Faith! Confidence! Commitment! Winning!
