About the foundation: The foundation is funded through the generosity of the Lubbock Association of REALTORS, its members and outside donations.  It was established in 1981 during Mr. Walton's year as President of the Lubbock Association of REALTORS as simply, the Lubbock Association of REALTORS Education Foundation. The Trustees of the Foundation saw fit to rename it in 2016 in memory and honor of Mr. Walton.  Mr. Walton, a 40-year REALTOR Emeritus member of the association, dedicated countless hours of service to the Lubbock, Texas and National Association of REALTORS. He served as the President of the Lubbock Association of REALTORS in 1981, President of the Texas Association of REALTORS in 1999, and was appointed to the Texas Real Estate Commission by Governor Rick Perry from 2001 to 2007. He was appointed as Chairman of the Commission by Governor Perry in 2004. Mr. Walton loved this community and the REALTOR profession and the foundation strives to honor his legacy.
