A letter from Director of Schools Grant Swallows

The Warren County community and Warren County School District are heavy hearted today with the loss of one of our own, Jordan Stevens. Our collective prayers are with the entire Stevens family. They are our colleagues, friends and most of all family.  Jordan graduated from our system in 2015 with a bright future ahead. One of his teachers remarked, “Jordan was an amazing young man who was always dependable, upright and an exceptional friend. He was a leader in and out of the classroom and actively walked in his faith.”  

After watching the grief our schools have experienced today through this unimaginable tragedy, we are resolute that we all must do better. No wife, mother, father, sibling or friend should have to experience the events that took place yesterday. 

May it cause us to better understand and respect our fellow citizens and to remember that life is valuable. Once again, our thoughts and prayers are with the Stevens family and we hope everyone will remember them in the coming days. In order to support them, some members of our school community have established an account with First National Bank of Middle Tennessee in McMinnville that will receive donations. The phone number is 931-473-4402.
