Sally A. and Forrest W. Heaton Endowed Prize in Literature (Excellence in the Major)

This endowed prize is designated for recognizing overall excellence in the English major. Sally Ann MacArthur & Forrest Heaton met as students at Albion in 1958. They were married in Albion's Chapel, 27 August, 1960. They shared two years of dating at Albion and thirty-seven grand years of marriage. Sally died 23 February, 1997. The family set up this endowment in memory of Sally, to honor her strong interest in literature—particularly Shakespeare and Twain, to express their appreciation to Albion for the educational foundations provided to Sally & Forrest, and to assist Albion students in their securing their own educational foundations.
