View Brochure (PDF)

The Mississippi Chapter of the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association is pleased to announce our 1st Annual Mississippi Funeral Directors and Morticians Association Scholarship Golf Tournament scheduled for May 5, 2014. The tournament will be held at the beautiful Links at Cottonwoods Golf Course, Tunica, Mississippi. Proceeds from this event will help fund the Cailton Schaffer Scholarship Foundation.

The Cailton Schaffer Scholarship Foundation was established in 2009 in memory of Mr. Cailton Schaffer, who was a 1972 graduate of Jackson State University with a B.S. Degree in Biology and received a Master’s Degree in Chemistry in 1976. He was a high school Biology teacher, the first African American chemist employed by Mississippi Chemical Corporation, and he was also elected as the first African American Class President at the Dallas Institute of Mortuary Science in 1989. He was the CEO of Schaffer & Collins Funeral Homes (Bentonia and Yazoo City, MS). Mr. Schaffer was also a member of the Holmes Community College Funeral Service board, the NFDMA, and past president of MFDMA. He was a shining example of dedication and service within the funeral industry.

This scholarship is eligible to aspiring students who are residents of the state of Mississippi, and enrolled at an accredited college or university within the State of Mississippi pursuing a degree in Mortuary Science
