Michael Turner, Security

Michael Turner was no stranger to Gordon Parks when he joined the maintenance staff. 

"Four of my children went to school here," he said proudly.  "I know what this school offers--small class sizes and lots of encouragement. This job is a good fit for me," Mr. Turner said. "I can help keep the school stay clean and, at the same time, serve as a role model for the boys; many come from single-family homes."
