Carlton, who allocated family resources to ensure all seven of his younger siblings attended Baylor or Mary Hardin-Baylor before he earned his Baylor degree. The couple established the Claude S. Carlton Endowed Scholarship Fund through the Carlton Family Foundation in his honor and have supported the Paul L. Foster Success Center's Office of Access and Learning Accommodation and the Hankamer School of Business.
