David E. Turybury '90 Family Scholarship in Education and Physical Education

The David E. Turybury ‘90 Family Scholarship in Education and Physical Education was established by David and his wife, Sheila Turybury. In creating this scholarship, David’s intent was to honor several faculty including Dr. Norma Carr, Dr. Joan Sitterly and most notably, Ms. Phyllis McGinley, who offered three attributes that have held true in life as a teacher, coach and father. They are to be firm, fair and consistent. In addition, the influence of Dr. Judith Rink ‘65 had a profound impact on David’s experience while a graduate assistant at South Carolina.
