Delores Turner of Robbins understands the importance of community, the necessity of giving back to it, and value in supporting its members. She devoted 34 years to teaching first graders and now devotes much of her time to supporting the Ralph R. and Delores Turner Endowed Scholarship Foundation at Governors State University.
The recently expanded scholarship now provides $1000 a year to a student studying to be an elementary school teacher and to a student studying either political or social sciences.
