The Sheila W. Jordan Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded in memory of Sheila W Jordan. Ms. Jordan began her career with the Baltimore City Department of Corrections and later worked in the newly formed Mayor's Office of information Technology (MOIT). In both positions she worked tirelessly to improve the working conditions of Baltimore City Employees. She was also known as an enthusiastic advocate for education.
Ms. Jordan was one of the original organizers of the City Union of Baltimore (CUB) Local 800, AFT, AFL-CIO. The Union received its charter from the American Federation of Teachers in January of 1988. Ms. Jordan began working as a Labor Relations Specialist for CUB and eventually progressed to Staff Director. Ms. Jordan continually worked to organize the membership of the City Union of Baltimore. In 1996, Ms. Jordan was elected President of the City Union of Baltimore where she served as President until her untimely passing in 2001.
In memory of Ms. Jordan and her determination and dedication to organize members, to advocate for higher education and to improve the lives and working conditions of Baltimore City employees, the Sheila W. Jordan Scholarship was created. The very first scholarship was awarded in August 2002.
