John Turner ’70

Ever since enrolling at the University of Arizona, Brother Turner has gravitated to positions of leadership. During his undergraduate career, he held numerous positions within the fraternity as well as the Greek community. These roles have helped him establish himself as a loyal alumnus and prominent attorney in the San Diego area.

Brother Turner earned a degree in government in 1974 and graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1977. He was an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association for 15 years, a member of the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California Mediation Panel and a court designated mediator for the San Diego Superior Courts. John is currently president of Turner and Marsh, Inc.

As an alumnus, Brother Turner has faithfully served the Kappa Sigma Gamma-Rho House Corporation and continues to support the Kappa Sigma Educational Foundation. He is also a contributor to the national dues program. John’s fraternity involvement began at Gamma-Rho, where he held the positions of Grand Scribe, Grand Procurator and Grand Master, which he held for two years. Additionally, he was awarded the scholarship and leadership award for four semesters.

While at the UA, Brother Turner was a member of the Arizona Daily Wildcat advertising staff, the Bobcats and the Traditions Committee. He also played an integral role in the UA Greek system as vice president of the IFC where he helped guide one of the largest Greek communities in the Western United states.

John has taken a strong interest in the San Diego community where he has touched the lives of hundreds of children. He has coached little league and was a YMCA basketball coach. He is also a past member of the vestry of All Souls Church, co-chairman of Sacred Heart Academy fundraising and chairman of fundraising for All Saints Episcopal school.

Brother Turner is excited to be returning to the Gamma-Rho Chapter after a distinguished undergraduate career where he helped not only the fraternity, but also the entire Greek system.
