Maryland Gold Star Mothers, Stephanie White, Joy Goode and Tracy Miller were honored at the Towson University (TU) Senior Day\ Military Appreciation football game on Saturday, November 18, 2023. Prior to the scheduled football game, the 7th Annual Wardell Turner Scholarship luncheon was held in honor of U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major Wardell Turner who played football for TU and graduated in 1989 with a degree in Management. He made the ultimate sacrifice on November 24, 2014 while serving in Afghanistan. A scholarship has been established in his memory.
After the luncheon, Gold Star Families attended the football game and was able to watch it from The Minnegan Room at The Johnny Unitas Stadium as The Towson Tigers hosted The Rhode Island Rams. TU Leadership is committed to supporting the military, Gold Star families and keeping the legacy of fallen Heroes alive. We had a wonderful day of remembrance and fellowship. The Towson Tigers won against The Rhode Island Rams 31–30. It was a great day for a football game and honoring our military.
