2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 21 of 44
Do you remember a moment when time stood still and your life changed forever? Jordan McGaughey does. On October 17, 2017, when he heard Dr. Jane Foley call his name at Imperial's Seckman High School, Jordan froze, even as students sitting around him in the bleachers stood and cheered. One of the day's most beautiful moments: Jordan's face lighting up when he spotted veteran Milken Educator Dr. Jeffrey Gall (MO '96), one of Jordan's professors from his days at Truman State University. "I didn't know—I really didn't know!" Jeff told Jordan as the thunderous applause continued. Later, Jeff said Jordan was a truly memorable student: "I have a feeling he's one of those teachers you never forget, too."
