Sandra Brown Turner, Board Member

Sandra Brown Turner is a native of Memphis, Tennessee. She is a two-time graduate of the University of Memphis and makes it clear that she is an avid Memphis TIGER basketball fan. (The Memphis Grizzlies NBA team is also a favorite.) Her lifelong career in early childhood education has spanned more than 40 years. She has served on local, state, regional and national educational organizations, boards and task forces. From 1988-2000, she was a tenured professor of education at Southwest Tennessee Community College. She currently serves as the Director of the Barbara K. Lipman Early Childhood School and Research Institute at the University of Memphis. Right now, she is hopeful that the Obama administration can get it right with his proposed universal pre-k four year old program for the U.S.
