Drs. Michelina Fato and Carl Snyderman endowed The Dr. Victoria Bernardis Jordan Latin Award in 2011 to honor Dr. Victoria Jordan, who retired at the close of the 2015-16 school year after 18 years of service at The Ellis School. During her tenure, Dr. Jordan taught scores of students the Latin language as well as the history of Ancient Rome. Through her passion and dedication, Dr. Jordan inspired Ellis graduates to continue to study the classics in college and beyond. Her legacy continues because of the difference she has made in the lives of all of her students.
