My nana, Marilyn Loy Turner, has recently become Kentucky colonel and I want to share her achievement with everyone:


Marilyn Loy Turner Commissioned as Kentucky Colonel

From Governor Matthew Bevin's Communications Office
Kentucky Colonel is the highest title of honor bestowed by the commonwealth of Kentucky. Commission for Kentucky Colonels are given by the governor and the secretary of state to individuals in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to a community, state, or the nation.

Marilyn Loy Turner of Columbia was bestowed this honor of a colonel's commission by issuance of a letter and a framed plaque complete with the governor's gold seal sent to her from Frankfort. Turner has served the community as a registered nurse for almost four-decades as well as authored many national publications devoted to Kentucky heritage.

Since 1813, the honor has been given to refer to notable people with honored reputations including celebrities, performers, businessmen, artists, athletes, and writers. The selection process is intended to identify only those with a reputation for high moral standards and a record of good works and accomplishments.

The stated mission of this organization is to aid and promote the commonwealth of Kentucky and its citizens. Kentucky Colonels raise money to support Kentucky charities and educational organizations to conduct other works toward the good will of Kentuckians.
Governor Bevin expressed it well when he said: "Kentucky Colonels are servant leaders dedicated to the well-being of their community in a way no-one else can be."
