Alumni of the Year: Rebecca ’74 and David Morton ’75

Rebecca and David Morton David, class of 1975, has spent his career as a medical doctor seeking mercy and justice for the sick and poor in the United States and abroad in Africa. Rebecca, class of 1974, has been his constant partner in this ministry. From completing his residency in Philadelphia’s inner city, often treating victims of gang warfare, to serving in multiple vital roles for hospitals in Africa, David has given himself entirely to alleviating the suffering of the poor and the outcast. David would be the first to say he would never have been able to do the work he has done without Rebecca ministering along with him. She has ministered in countless ways to children in the children’s ward, as well as to their mothers, helping provide clothing and other basic needs. David and Rebecca would be quick to say that whatever has been accomplished through them is entirely due to the strength, provision, and grace of our Triune God. After years of faithful service, David and Rebecca plan to retire from overseas work at the end of this year.


Six years ago, Marshall ’08 and Katherine Whitmire Teague ’06 thought they would spend the rest of their lives in Oregon. Today they live on Lookout Mountain, where they operate a sustainable farm called EdenThistle.
