Francis Marion University to honor fallen alumna with campus park

Francis Marion University’s Board of Trustees approved naming a new park on campus after the late Farrah “Maxine” Turner. Turner, a 2005 FMU graduate, was an investigator with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office who was killed during the October 3 shooting tragedy in West Florence.

Turner Park will be an intimate and reflective space set amidst the Forest Villa residential apartments on campus. It will include benches, trails, plantings and a distinctive water feature.

It’s part of FMU’s ongoing enhancement of residential areas on campus. Turner Park is scheduled to be completed in early 2019. A dedication ceremony will be held early next spring.
