The Robert Calhoun Jordan, III Memorial Scholarship
Cal's Cairn Award
The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency (NCHFA) in partnership with the Professional Housing Rehabilitation Association of North Carolina (PHRANC) established the Robert Calhoun Jordan, III Memorial Scholarship, Cal’s Cairn Award, as a tribute to Cal for his years of service as a Senior Housing Rehabilitation Officer with NCHFA and as a long standing PHRANC member and PHRANC Board Officer.
Cal championed the improvement of housing conditions in North Carolina through his steadfast support for the training of rehabilitation specialists to spread the best practices of housing rehabilitation, to broaden the understanding of building science and increase the professionalism of all those who serve in government funded housing rehabilitation programs.
With the goal that Cal’s stewardship will never be forgotten, we hope that these scholarships will act as guides on a trail, leading many housing rehabilitation specialists to training and educational opportunities that will result in better housing for those North Carolinians most in need.
In support of this critical training, the Cal’s Cairn Award Scholarship Committee will award one annual scholarship to provide financial assistance to a PHRANC member or an organization with an annual award up to Five Hundred Dollars ($500) to pay the conference fees for the Fall and Spring PHRANC conferences each fiscal year.
