Our story

Our parents, John Walker Horton Sr and Christine Crutchfield-Horton were North Carolina tobacco farmers from the 1960s to the mid 1980s. Mom was a prominent homemaker, nurturing and tending both children and farm. Dad worked as a custodian at Lennox Baker Hospital (Durham NC) during day, and farmed in the evenings in Northern Chatham County until night fall. They raised 8 children and financed the secondary education for those who wanted to continue. These were the two hardest working and dedicated people I have ever known. For this I humbly and graciously honor their legacy through this scholarship.

Our goal

Help first-gen students like myself achieve their education goals
