"Through the Tolton Program I have come to realize that every that God has given me, may be a gift or blessing to someone else, while my weaknesses may be opportunities for others to utilize their God given gifts and talents to help me." - Anthony Irvin, current scholar
"As a Tolton Scholar, I have been exposed to new avenues of ministry. I am thankful to the Tolton Formation directors who persuaded me to search within myself to discover who I am and what I wanted to do." - Carol Smith, graduate
