Delegate Frank S. Turner ’73 is making an impact in the lives of Maryland students who wish to complete their college education. Turner recently served as the lead sponsor for the Near Completers and the Maryland Community College Promise Scholarships Bill. The bill allocates an estimated $15 million per year in need-based tuition assistance to thousands of Maryland students seeking to advance their education.

According to The Baltimore Sun, “Delegate Turner considers this bill to be the second-most important of his 24-year tenure in the House of Delegates because it can reduce college loan debt and help more Marylanders participate in the American dream.”

Turner who currently serves as a Maryland state delegate was elected to be the first African-American to serve Howard County in the General Assembly.

Having served as a Maryland state delegate since 1995, Turner will retire this year.
