Maxine Shelly Turner Memorial Scholarship
Maxine Shelly Turner was a senior in Chemical Engineering just three weeks from graduating Magna Cum Laude in honors at Virginia Tech, when her life was abruptly cut short while sitting in German class. Maxine, or Max to her friends and family, was a founding member of the Alpha Omega Epsilon Rho Chapter at Virginia Tech, and served as Community Outreach Officer and Professional Life Officer. Her goal was to provide a support group for women in engineering that would involve both professionalism and community service, in addition to the social aspect of the sorority. In keeping with her ideals and achievements, Maxine's family and friends requested the establishment of this scholarship to assist other young women with similar goals and aspirations.
