About John L. Carroll 

John began his career at NAHRO in 1980 as an intern while he was completing his Bachelor's degree 
in urban planning at George Washington University. He received his bachelor's degree in 1981. He joined
the staff permanently as a Community Development Assistant in June 1981, remaining in the Housing and
Community Development Services Division until 1986. At that time, he became Director of Training and 
Development, with responsbility for overseeing the development, updating, and scheduling of NAHRO's 
various training programs. During his tenure in this position, NAHRO's training programs increased signifcantly
in number and scope. One innovation suggested by Mr. Carroll and adopted by the Board of Governors was
a limited number of scholarships for staff of small agencies to attend NAHRO trainings.
John was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, and graduted from the Worcester Academy in 1975. He was listed
in "Outstanding Young Men of America" in 1986. He lived in Alexandria, VA where he was active in a number of
civic and service organizations. John passed away in December 1991.
