She Gave $10,000 Winning To Her Grandma Who Rescued Her From Foster Care.
It’s not too often anyone wins that basketball contest where if you sink the ball from mid-court, you win a lot of money. And even if we did, what are our chances of hitting it?
Mine would be zero to none.
But in Lawrence, Kansas, sophomore Jordan Stiers of Independence, Missouri, won the contest, and she was allowed to pick a non-player to shoot the ball for her.
She chose Brennan Bechard, who was the director of Kansas basketball operations. And, amazingly, Brennan sank that big shot. And for doing so, young Jordan won $10,000.
She could do SO MUCH with that money now. But Jordan could only think of one thing to do with it… give it to her grandmother, Roxanne Edwards, who raised Jordan and four of her siblings.
Says Jordan: “She’s my mom. She’s my dad. She’s my grandma – she’s everything. She has done so much for me, taught me so much. There’s nothing I can do to repay her, but this will say thank you a little bit.”
Jordan added that she wasn’t sure how her grandmother would feel about it, but that she would probably cry. And I would imagine she did.
