The Arkansas Spinal Cord Foundation is pleased to announce the 2012 Sandra Turner Memorial
Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship will be presented to an Arkansan who lives with a spinal cord
disability and plans to attend college or other formal educational or training endeavors for the 2012 – 13

Commission and a founding member of the Arkansas Spinal Cord Foundation. Ms. Turner, who lived with
a spinal cord injury from a motor vehicle crash, was the president of the Foundation until her untimely

Foundation as a way to provide funding for services for those who needed help to achieve their goals.
