Posted: Updated:

Joe Jordan has joined the IHSAA Foundation board of directors. He is president and chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fort Wayne. A lifetime resident of Fort Wayne, Jordan has more than 25 years of experience at the executive level of organizational management, working in community organizations whose primary focus is youth and family development.

It also will support IHSAA member schools through a grant program designed to help fund special projects.
