Dr. Craig Turner

Kentucky Wesleyan College

After three years as president of Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, Dr. Craig Turner says he’ll retire in September.  Turner will turn 68 years old in January and says he plans to move back to Dallas with his wife Annette to be closer to family.

Turner became president at Kentucky Wesleyan in 2011 after serving as president at colleges in Salisbury, North Carolina and Abilene, Texas.

The chair of Kentucky Wesleyan’s board of trustees, Tom Grieb, says the process of selecting Turner’s replacement is underway.
