There is being established the Rosalie & Frank Turner Institute for Race & Reconciliation at Texas A & M University - Commerce. They have been leading pilgrimages of students from the university to AL for the past 10 years and MS for the past 2 years, reaching 300 students. These have been developed into 3 credit hr classes. The institute will expand the idea of exposing students to the civil rights struggle in our nation hoping to empower them to move forward with some kind of action.

Rosalie is a graduate of Mary Washington College, which at that time was the women's college of UVA. She has worked as a juvenile probation officer and as a Director of Christian Education. Rosalie was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom but worked through volunteer activities, including Headstart Program, Habitat for Humanity, a jail ministry, teaching adult literacy and English as a Second Language, and tutoring in the inner city.

While in Jacksonville, FL,she received the JC Penney Award for establishing a summer reading program in the inner city. Rosalie has always been very active in their church wherever they lived; they've moved seventeen times due to her husband's career.

She is married to Frank Turner, and they have celebrated their 50th anniversary. The Turners have two sons, Kile who with his wife Sara (both attorneys) have six children, and Joel, a former Marine, now a policeman, who lives in North Carolina. They lost a third son to leukemia when he was ten years old.
