It is my pleasure to serve as Chair of the J.L. Turner Legal Association Foundation's 2012 Board of Directors. As we embark on another successful journey this year, I would like to take this opportunity to commend our Immediate Past Chair, Phyllis Lister-Brown for her hard work and diligent efforts over the past year.
It is my vision that the Foundation will accomplish the following goals and objectives:
1. Provide funding to enhance the resources for J.L. Turner Legal Association Foundation to increase scholarships for African-American law students.
2. Enhance the image of J.L. Turner Legal Association Foundation by expanding the pipeline for African-American students entering the legal profession.
3. Coordinate fundraising efforts between J.L. Turner Legal Association and J.L. Turner Legal Association Foundation.
It is only through efforts of all of us that we will be able to achieve and exceed the above identified goals and objectives. Accordingly, I solicit and welcome your valued suggestions, comments, participation and cooperation in making 2012 an exciting and successful year.
Chair, J.L. Turner Legal Association Foundation
