Beasley Allen is excited to be participating in the Emmy award-winning television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which filmed in Montgomery the week of Feb. 16, 2009. Following the theme “Heroes at Home,” the producers of the popular program selected Monica and Brady Jordan and their family as recipients of the home makeover. The Jordans were selected in recognition of their dedicated community service.

The program featuring the Jordan family will air Sunday night, April 26, at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT) on ABC.

Beasley Allen became involved in the project when it was invited to sponsor the show, and felt the program’s theme complimented the firm’s mission of “helping those who need it most.” The build was unique in that all products and labor had to be donated. A team of builders from Aronov Homes, along with hundreds of volunteers, worked around the clock for a week to make the dream of a new home a reality for the Jordans.

The Family

Monica and Brady Jordan are active in the community through projects like Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) and the state’s Crime Victims Advocacy Program. The couple lost their daughter to a domestic violence situation, and their son in an auto accident. They are raising their grandchildren, Miles (15), Shan (14), and Keiunta (11), along with daughter Brittany, who is a student at University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB).

The Scholarship

During production, Beasley Allen staff learned that Monica Jordan had long dreamed of attending law school, and had originally hoped to attend with her daughter, Folashada, before she was tragically killed. Beasley Allen approached Faulkner University Thomas Goode Jones School of Law about helping Monica’s dream come true, impressed with the school’s own dedication to community service and outreach. As it happened, the school already was in the planning stages to establish a Public Interest Law Scholarship, so it was a natural fit to name the new scholarship in honor of Monica and her family. The scholarship was established as The Monica Jordan Public Interest Law Scholarship.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which has won back-to-back Emmy Awards as Best Reality Program (non-competitive), is in its 6th season on ABC. The program is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. Anthony Dominici is the executive producer; and David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The show airs on Sundays (7:00-8:00 CST), on the ABC Television Network.
