The brothers Turlington
The three Turlington brothers—Mark ’06, Chris ’10 and Michael ‘16—all excelled in the classrooms and labs of Furman’s chemistry department. They also excelled in the competition for the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, which is the nation’s most prestigious undergraduate award for math and science. Mark and Chris were Goldwater Scholars in 2004 and 2009, respectively, while Michael was a Goldwater Honorable Mention selection in 2015. For good measure, the brothers were also awarded two National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships. Such academic excellence didn’t go unnoticed by the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, which posted a story about the brothers on its website.
