Columbus State University (CSU) recently received a $1 million gift from The Coca-Cola Foundation to establish the William B. Turner Center for Servant Leadership. The donation, which honors the late Columbus businessman and civic leader who served on The Coca-Cola Company’s board of directors, will allow CSU’s undergraduate Servant Leadership program to continue with an enriched academic and service curriculum.
Turner was instrumental in initiating and financially supporting CSU’s early servant leadership initiatives. Today the center offers an annual stipend and leadership development opportunities for undergraduates, leadership development for CSU faculty and staff and a food pantry serving CSU students.
