On Tuesday, Oct. 16, the University of Cincinnati Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program will host its first presentation in the 2002-2003 Jerome Jackson Lecture Series featuring Assistant City Manager Rashad Young.
The program will begin at noon in the Event Pavilion on the the UC. With the theme "Think Big, Achieve More, Create Magic," Young will challenge students to achieve high personal and professional goals. In his current role, Young represents the city manager to city staff, key constituencies and community agencies. In addition, he coordinates special projects and serves as a liaison between the Office of the City Manager and council staff.
This lecture series was established to enhance the personal and professional development of Turner Scholars, university students and community members, while recognizing Jerome Jackson, one of over 500 accomplished Turner alumni. Jackson, a 1989 College of Pharmacy graduate and current manager with Walgreen Drug Stores, has supported the program.
The Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program helps academically talented students of color obtain a quality college education. Currently, there are 160 students in the program pursuing degrees in a variety of interests.
The program is named for the youngest person ever to graduate from the University of Cincinnati. Darwin T. Turner graduated from the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences at the age of 16. He completed his master's degree in English at the University of Cincinnati in 1949, earned a doctorate in English and American dramatic literature from the University of Chicago in 1956, and was the Dean of the African American World Studies Program at the University of Iowa until his death in 1991.
All are welcome to attend. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Bleuzette Marshall at (513) 556-2204.
