My name is Destiny Turner (soon-to-be McGee). I am a second year student in the MSW program (ADP Concentration). I have a big love for school & strive to be the best student I can be while doing the most good for the student organizations along the way. I am currently the Phi Alpha Honor Society President, NASW MSW Student Representative, & the SSWO Member At-Large (MSW). I enjoy staying busy and engaged in our program, but I am very eager to graduate and get married this upcoming May!
