The Norma Morgan Trust, Mr. Charles Carney, and Mrs. Dorothy Morgan-Carney

The Norma Morgan Trust, Mr. Charles Carney, and Mrs. Dorothy Morgan-Carney have generously donated the funds to establish the T.C. and Anna Horton Memorial Scholarship.

T.C. Horton was a competent business man, managing a farm in Fallon, California. He was an avid reader, learned Hebrew, and had a heart for Jewish ministries. While living and working in Fallon, he won the affections of Anna Kingsbury convincing her to leave her preacher fiancé, sure that a preacher wouldn’t be good for the young woman and that a businessman would be far better suited for marriage. Ironically, T.C. would later become a preacher himself. He started the Fisherman’s Club and played an important role in the founding of Biola University.

Anna Horton trained as a mezzo soprano, was a concert pianist, and founded the Lyceum Clubs for Christian businesswomen. She and her husband together raised four girls: Jessie, who died at the age of 23 of tuberculosis, Ruth, Helen, and Margaret.

Impact

Dear Mrs. Dorothy Morgan-Carney and Mr. Charles Carney:

Thank you for your generous gift! You are making it possible for me to finish my education at Biola. Because of your gift, I am able to prepare for a life of ministry without being distracted by concerns of how to pay for school. I am able to invest my time into developing my musical abilities and using them in the church. Thank you for your generosity!

Gratefully,

Michelle Lum
