The Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program was established in 1976 to honor an African American student who, at the age of 16, was the youngest person ever to graduate from the University of Cincinnati.
The scholarship program promotes academic excellence, fosters diversity and provides leadership opportunities to incoming students. In addition to providing full-tuition, Darwin T. Turner Scholars are expected to participate in programs and activities designed to improve their intellectual, personal and professional development.
I spent most of the day at this amazing conference, along with the rest of my Turner family, geared to make Leadership more accessible to students by defining what true leadership means even if no actual position is involved. I learned so much from that event and I intend to sign up for more conferences in the future.
