Leslie M. Turner, Esq.


Leslie Turner is a wonderful friend to Manor College. She spoke at our 2020 commencement in a year that was marked by uncertainty. She stepped in to provide an address that helped our students find comfort and hope at our first drive-in graduation ceremony. Then, she pledged $100,000 to host an endowed scholarship fund for students struggling to stay enrolled and working toward their education. Those funds will provide a constant source of strength for our students at a time when they need it most. Leslie is an expert in a variety of fields including global risk oversight and geopolitical insights, and she has experience as a board member and appointments for Coca-Cola Company, FirstEnergy Corporation, and Georgetown University, as well as an appointment within the U.S. Department of Interior from then President Bill Clinton. Leslie has been a frequent speaker on governance topics and has received recognition from various organizations including the New York Stock Exchange, The National Association of Women Lawyers, and Corporate Counsel Women of Color. Leslie is a graduate of American University, Georgetown University, and New York University, and when she is not touring the world, she resides in Sarasota, Florida.

Manor College is proud to honor Leslie M. Turner, Esq. at the 2021 Evening With Manor, Virtual Gala. Tune into the show on November 11th at 7pm!
