About the John R. Turner Scholarship Fund
The John R. Turner Scholarship Fund was established to help improve the quality of life for the residents of Breathitt County, Kentucky. John R. Turner's desire was to give every student the opportunity to go to college regardless of race, religion, or economic background. It was also his desire for everyone to be given the opportunity to improve his or her educational level without economic hindrance.
John R. Turner knew that a community of well educated citizens would result in an improved quality of life that he dreamed about. The John R. Turner Scholarship Foundation expects to achieve that goal.
