Southeastern’s Department of Industrial and Engineering Technology has received a $25,000 contribution from Turner Industries to establish The Turner Industries Endowed Scholarship to benefit students in disciplines offered by the department. Beginning in 2022, a $1,000 scholarship will be available to a student selected by the faculty annually.
Recently, President and CEO of Turner Industries Stephen Toups visited Southeastern’s Science and Technology Building to meet faculty and students and learn firsthand the offerings available to students in the department. Pictured from left are Southeastern President John L. Crain and Toups.
