The Tennessee Juvenile Court Services Association presented a $5000 donation to the University of Memphis' College of Arts and Sciences for the Judge Kenneth A. Turner Scholarship Fund during a luncheon Oct. 7. The scholarship provides financial support for students who have a declared major in criminology and criminal justice and honors Turner's work on behalf of children and families.

The gift also reflects the long-standing relationship between Juvenile Court and the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the U of M. The department held the luncheon to celebrate its work at the University of Memphis and in the community. The event also honored Professor Richard Janikowski's work as chair of the department, Dr. Jerry Sparger's tenure of 30 years of service to the University, and the contributions of Rhonda Williamson, longtime secretary in the department.  

Among those attending were faculty and staff from the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice; Dr. Henry Kurtz, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences; Stan Hyland, head of the School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy; and Debbie Bennett, president of the Tennessee Juvenile Court Services Association.
